Furnace fire at area home causes minimal damage

A furnace fire early Saturday caused a "little bit of soot" around the vents, but no significant damage, Ruggles Troy Volunteer Fire Chief Mike Reisinger said.

The fire, at 1578 Township Road 126, Greenwich, was reported at 12:47 a.m. Saturday. It was out by the time firefighters arrived. Nobody was injured or displaced. However, the fire left a "little bit of soot" around the vents, Reisinger said.

The chief said the home is in Ashland County, but has a Greenwich address and borders Greenwich, New London and Ruggles.

The New London Volunteer Fire Department sent a tanker, as did the Savannah department. Reisinger said he sent seven firefighters and they were on scene for about two hours to ensure everything was OK.

Reisinger declined to provide a monetary estimate of damage.
