CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) — Multiple fire departments responded to the scene of a “suspicious” vacant house fire in Campbell on Saturday afternoon.
The initial call came in around 4:30 p.m. for a house fire on the 100 block of Chambers Street. Crews from Struthers, Coitsville and Campbell fire departments were dispatched to the scene.
Our photographer at the scene said the building now has no roof. There have been reports of “popping sounds” at the scene.
Campbell fire Chief Stephen Dubic said the fire is considered suspicious, and it remains under investigation.
“We got pulled up on-scene, there’s like five to six units into the building, three units had fire into the basement, first floor and second floor,” Dubic said. “We had a heavy load of a fire to start.”
Dubic said crews also had issues with water pressure.
Fire department officials say there were no injuries, and the house was determined to be empty at the time. No utilities were on.
