There was no one home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries reported. The fire department will investigate possible causes of the blaze including information given to them by the Zanesville Police Department.

" I do not have the owners name yet, but this is passed on by the police department that the occupants, the renters had been told to be out by today," said Huey.

Assistant Chief Huey says that most of the family’s belongings were out of the home and the fire remains under investigation. The Zanesville Fire Department and police department were on the scene along with community ambulance.
