Fire damages house under renovation in Jefferson Twp.


A Jefferson Twp. house under renovation was damaged by fire late Tuesday night.

Firefighters from Jefferson Twp., Dayton, and West Carrollton were dispatched around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday to a house in the 5400 block of Germantown Pike on reports of a structure fire.

Jefferson Twp. Fire Chief Larry Sexton said crews located and worked to extinguish the blaze before much of the assistance from other departments arrived.

Sexton said the house was unoccupied but was under renovation.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but might have started in a furnace.

Sexton said damage was confined mostly to one area and the renovation would be allowed to continue, but a cost estimation was unknown.

No injuries were reported.
