CINCINNATI -- Four people lost their home to a fire in West Price Hill that happened Friday afternoon around 4:30.
Firefighters arrived to a home at 1003 Regina Avenue to find heavy smoke coming from the home's rear attic. Fire Chief Lou Arnold reported that the fire crew had trouble reaching the blaze because the stairwell to the second floor was hidden by drywall.
They finally made way into the attic through a window, then opened the stairwell for easier access to the flames. It took 42 firefighters and about 30 minutes to put the fire out.
The two-story brick home housed two families. The two stories and attic were burned, causing an estimated $40,000 of damage, Arnold said.
No residents were home at the time, so nobody was hurt. However, four people were unable to return home Friday night. The Red Cross stepped in to help care for the victims.
Arnold said cause of the fire was not immediately known, but would be further investigated.
