BRACEVILLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN)- Fire investigators say it’ll be hard to pinpoint how and where a fire at a vacant home in Braceville started.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Monday at a house on the 1000 of Bailey Anderson Road.

By the time firefighters arrived, Fire Chief Todd Garland said the home and detached garage were consumed by fire.

One of the neighbors woke up to a loud noise and called 911.

911 caller: “I heard an explosion. My dog woke me up. The house next door is on fire.”

Garland said he believes the home had been burning for at least 45 minutes before the neighbor called 911. The Ohio State Fire Marshal was called to assist with the investigation.

Garland says so far the cause has been ruled undetermined.
