Woman, 2 children without place to stay after central Toledo house fire

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A fire in central Toledo leaves a family without a place to stay Friday morning.

The fire happened at a home on the 1400 block of Lincoln Avenue.

A woman and her two children live in the home, but were not there when the fire occurred.

The woman said she took her children to a hotel to go swimming, and arrived home to see fire crews at her house.

Crews say the fire started in the back of the home and burned a long time before someone noticed it.

Crews say part of the back of the house is a complete loss, and are still determining the status of the rest of the house.

A fire investigator is looking into the cause of the fire.

The Red Cross is on their way to the scene to assist the family.
