On Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 1348 hours your Mantua Township Fire fighters were dispatched to the 800 block of Heritage Road for a reported dwelling fire. Squad 2211 responded immediately with a crew of 3, followed quickly by Tender 2214 with two personnel. Shortly after, Chief 2201 arrived on scene and found a 1-1/2 story single family dwelling with smoke showing from the attic.
Squad 2211 was ordered to stretch a single 1 3/4″ Hand line into the residence to extinguish the fire. Tender 2214 arrived and supplied Squad 2211 due to the lack of hydrants in the area. Crews were able to quickly bring the fire under control limiting damage to the interior ceiling and attic area. Once the fire was brought under control the scene was turned over to the Mantua Township Fire Marshal’s Office for investigation. The fire remains under investigation at this time.
