The Elyria Fire Department responded to a May 17 fire that resulted in injuries to two firefighters.
Crews responded at 4 a.m. to 143 Clark St. for a house where the second floor was fully engulfed, according to Elyria fire Assistant Chief Joe Pronesti.
While combating the blaze, two firefighters were injured; one received a minor injury to a finger, and the other was sent to UH Elyria to be evaluated for a knee injury, Pronesti said.
“The fire was extinguished in 10 minutes, but we stayed for around two hours to check for possible extensions,” he said. “The second floor sustained severe heat and smoke damage.
“The one occupant of the home made it out, but she and her family will have to relocate.”
Pronesti said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
The blaze caused about $12,000 in damages, he said.
