Chief Alexander says the structure was fully-engulfed in flames when they arrived on the scene. He says they put the flames out within minutes.The siding to the rear of the home was melted as a result of the close proximity of the flames. Wayne Township received mutual aid from the South Zanesville Fire Department.
