Five fire departments responded to a fire this afternoon in Thornville that destroyed a home.
It happened at 7335 Township Road 87. No one was injured in the blaze, but two adults and three children under the age of six reside in the home.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office has been called to investigate, but at this time they do not believe it was arson.
The Muskingum Valley Red Cross is assisting the family.
