Fire results in minimal damage to attic

By Greg Smart -

HUBER HEIGHTS — Huber Heights firefighters responded to 4884 Queensbury at 1:55 p.m. on Monday for a fire that did minimal damage to the attic.

According to Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth, a man discarded some old charcoal briquettes and ashes into a large plastic tote on the outside of his house that caught on fire and spread up into the soffitt and subsequently, into the attic. Damage was not extensive as Ashworth said crews contained the fire to the attic.

Assisting were crews from Dayton, Butler Township, Riverside and Vandalia.

Around 5 p.m. on Friday, fire crews responded to the new Panera Bread site at 8100 Old Troy Pike after workers hit a gas line. It was quickly resolved by Huber fire crews on the scene working with the construction crew at the site to shut the gas line off at the street.
