A house is badly damaged by fire in the Conneaut Lake area.


“I would say this is a total loss.”


Summit Township Fire Marshall Peter Albaugh tells Forever Broadcasting the cause at this point is being ruled undetermined.  The fire occurred at the home of 31—year-old Mike Quail at the corner of Gordan Road and Moro Lane.


It’s in the same neighborhood as a string of suspicious fires reported several months ago.  Steven Chatley is awaiting trial for allegedly setting one of those fires.


Albaugh says it’s too early to tell whether this latest blaze was intentional, but he says it does not appear fit the pattern of the previous fires.


A next door neighbor reported the fire before 5:30 this morning.  Summit Township Fire Department was assisted by a handful of other departments in Crawford County.


Mr. Quail was not home at the time this fire broke out.  Officials said there were no injuries.
