Attic fire damages house in Lorain

LORAIN — An attic fire around 5:05 p.m. Sunday at 1246 North Ridge Road caused no injuries but did about $5,000 in property damage, according to Assistant Fire Chief Dennis Livchak.

A homeowner said he was installing drywall when the fire broke out on a dresser. Livchak said the man threw water on the dresser and it was extinguished when they arrived, but there was fire in a wall that took about 10 minutes to extinguish.
