Family Escapes House Fire in Cuyahoga Falls

The fire broke out Sunday afternoon on Grant Avenue.

No injuries were reported Sunday after a fire broke out at 607 Grant Ave.

The occupants, a couple and their four children ages 2-9, fled the residence and contacted the Cuyahoga Falls Fire Department at 1:04 p.m.

Firefighters quickly responded and doused the small blaze that burned primarily in the kitchen, according to Cuyahoga Falls Fire Lt. Tim Mier.

According to Mier, one of the children smelled smoke and alerted their mother who called 911. A friend of the family, who was visiting at the time, attempted to extinguish the fire, but was driven out by heavy smoke.

As of now, Mier hasn't pinpointed the cause, but estimated the damage at $12,000.
