Submitted Tue, 06/19/2012 - 6:17am by Andy Alm

Yet another cottage on Reed Avenue, in Summit Township, near Conneaut Lake ignited this morning.  The initial call to firefighters was made at around 5:25 this morning.  The cottage is near Fuller Alley.  It's said to be fully involved.  A handful of departments are on the scene.

It's the fourth fire to strike the area in the last couple of weeks.    Forever Broadcsting spoke with the Summit Township Fire Marshal, Pete Albaugh, on May 30th, when the first fire destroyed a vacant summer home . He said the fire appeared suspicious.

Neighbors, like Shannon Beck, have their own suspicions as well:

"I think that what's happening here is someone don't like the owner, or it's just teenagers doing their natural thing."

Details on this latest fire are sketchy.  We'll have updates as soon as we know more.
