Three-alarm fire destroys home

KIRTLAND, OH (WOIO) - Fire destroyed a Kirtland home Wednesday morning.

Kirtland firefighters received an emergency call just after midnight at a home on Singlefoot Trail. The homeowner woke to the smell of smoke. She and her son were able to escape, but their family dog is still missing.

It took firefighters from 11 departments to battle the blaze.

Crews had to dig the fire hydrants out of the snow to get them.

Officials say the extreme cold was a huge factor in making the fire hard to combat.
