FIRE IN LIBERTY CENTER DUPLEX WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

A trio of area fire departments converged on Liberty Center Wednesday afternoon, when a blaze ignited in the upstairs of a duplex on East Street.  The Liberty Center fire department was first on the scene at 12:45pm at 710 East Street, where flames ignited in the living room of the four-room duplex.  There was significant fire damage to all four rooms; but minimal damage to the downstairs portion of the structure.  An adult male resided upstairs; but was not at home; and the downstairs occupant was able to escape unharmed.  Just over 20 fire-fighters were on the scene for about two hours.  The cause of the blaze is undetermined; but not suspicious.   Napoleon and Delta provided mutual aid in fighting the fire.
