A fire that broke out at a duplex home at about 8 p.m. Wednesday evening in Bellaire, Ohio has been contained. This is the third fire in three days in Bellaire.
Crews responded to 4293 Noble Street where the fire fighters from the Neffs Volunteer Fire Department immediately put it out. The other part of the duplex at 4289 Noble Street, was not affected, according to a resident who called 7News.
Initial reports into the 7News newsroom suggested a person had been trapped inside the home. A 7News journalist at the scene learned from neighbors all people inside the house got out safely. The neighbors also said the fire seemed "smoky", without many flames on the outside.
Another resident who declined an on-camera interview said that pets were inside at the time the fire broke out, but got out of the home safely.
The fire is believed to have started in a second floor bedroom. A crew from the Shadyside Fire Department also responded, but departed after the fire was deemed under control.
