Crews on scene of Springfield Twp. house fire

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) – Crews are at the scene of a single-story house fire in Springfield Township in the 800 block of Satin Leaf Drive.

Officials say the fire started in one of two connected villas, then spread to the adjacent unit through a shared attic.

Bertie Simcox, who lives in the villa, was home at the time of the fire.

"There was pounding on the front door and one of the neighbors was there.  I came running down with my dog and didn't grab a thing from upstairs. I opened the door and she was screaming 'get out of the house, get out of the house.' I go 'What, what, what?' and she says 'the house is on fire'," said Simcox.

Simcox said she is concerned about damage to her home, but is glad everyone made it out safe, including her dog.
