House Fire on Rockwood Drive
PAINESVILLE, Ohio - At approximately 2:49 p.m. on Monday, February 6, the Painesville City Fire Department responded to reported smoke from a home in the 300 block of Rockwood Drive. Occupants of the home had evacuated when PCFD arrived three minutes later.
Firefighters entered the structure and found a smoldering fire in the rear wall of the house, which was quickly extinguished. The house was then ventilated to remove remaining smoke.
PCFD received Automatic Mutual Aid form Fairport Harbor Fire Department, Concord Twp Fire Department, Grand River Fire Department and Painesville Township Fire Department. Painesville Police Department and Painesville Electric were also on the scene to assist.
The cause of the fire appears to be faulty electrical wiring on the rear outside wall of the home. The initial damage is estimated at $20,000. The American Red Cross of Northern Ohio was contacted to assist the family until the home can be reoccupied.
