A house fire occurred at 116 Luck Avenue in Zanesville Wednesday evening.
The call came in at approximately 6:40PM. We spoke to Assistant Fire Chief for the Zanesville Fire Department, Robert Long, who gave us an overview of what happened.
"We arrived, there was light smoke showing. The occupants were outside, told us where the fire was. We found fire on the first floor in the bedroom area. Those occupants had moved out or had left earlier today and weren’t expected back tonight"
According to Long, a cat belonging to the occupants was found on the back porch and appeared to be in a state of distress. Long also gave us an overview of the fire damage.
"Substantial damage on the ground floor here….quite a bit of fire and heat and smoke damage and probably smoke damage upstairs as well."
No injuries were reported. Zanesville Fire and Police Departments responded to the scene. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
