Firefighters battle Lyndon Avenue blaze in Ashtabula

ASHTABULA — Firefighters were able to contain a house fire to the second floor of a home at 808 Lyndon Avenue after it broke out around 8 p.m., according to Ashtabula Fire Department Lt. Ron Deemer and witnesses.

Troy Ziegler, son of owner John Ziegler, said a fuse blew and he went to the basement to change it. While he was in the basement his family screamed that the house was on fire, he said.

“Everyone got out okay,” Ziegler said of his father, wife and three children. He said two dogs also safely got out as well.

Firefighters from Ashtabula and Ashtabula Township were able to contain the fire and conduct mop-up operations that included clearing debris from part of the second floor, Deemer said.

A firefighter threw a burned coach from the second floor window along with other debris.

An emergency vehicle was used to block an intersection north of the 800 block while Illuminating Company vehicles also responded to the scene.

“It filled up quickly,” Ziegler said of the smoke that quickly spread through the house.

Deemer said another crew was called to man the station. He said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
