TWINSBURG -- The cause of a May 9 fire at a Post Road home remains under investigation, though firefighters say the blaze was "unintentional" and began in an attached garage.
No injuries were reported in the fire (a St. Bernard dog exited safely), which could be close to $400,000 in damage to the home, according to the homeowner.
The family is living in a hotel as repairs are made, and could be displaced for up to six months, the homeowner said.
The fire began somewhere in the garage where there were different, common garage chemicals and compounds, around 3:40 p.m., according to Assistant Fire Chief Steve Bosso.
"It was unintentional. We were able to cut it off pretty quickly with the help of our mutual aid, and we were able to save the home," Bosso said.
Bosso said the fire was "high heat," causing a hole in the garage floor.
Mutual aid was provided by Reminderville, Oakwood, Solon and Aurora.
