AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Officials executed warrants to two Akron-area homes that are on a neighboring street near the Fultz Street house that burned Monday, killing seven people.

Law enforcement, the State Fire Marshal, and a K-9 were on the scene Thursday checking two homes near the intersection of Hillcrest Street and Fultz Street.

Evidence including clothes, shoes and gas cans were seen being removed from the homes by the State Fire Marshal.

The homes are both owned by Stanley Ford and his family. At the conclusion of the search, Ford told reporter Paul Orlousky "they are trying to associate me with this fire, that I know nothing about."

Monday’s fire less than a block away from the homes searched today resulted in the death of five children and two adults. Angela Boggs, her boyfriend Dennis Huggins, and five of her children died.

Police maintain that the investigation is ongoing and that no one has been arrested or charged in connection with the case.

Results from evidence collected by the State Fire Marshal aren’t expected until next week at the earliest.

Police have not released any additional details regarding the search warrants or the cause of the fire.
