A fire forced four people from their Sheffield Township home Thursday.

The fire at the home in the 2100 block of Roo­sevelt Avenue started in an upstairs bedroom a lit­tle after 2 p.m. Firefighters from Sheffield Town­ship, Sheffield, Elyria Township and Avon battled the blaze about 30 minutes before bringing it under control, Sheffield Township Fire Chief Joe Bandagski said.

The bedroom where the fire started sustained heavy damage, Bandagski said. The rest of the house suffered smoke and water damage.

The Red Cross is assisting the residents.

The Chronicle’s Bruce Bishop posted about 15 minutes of live video to Chroniclet.com.
