5 homes engulfed in flames in East Cleveland

EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A total of five homes caught fire in the early morning on Wednesday, June 13.

The fire took place in East Cleveland off 125th street in Superior.

There are no fatalities on the scene, but a lot of damage to several houses.

The house where the fire originally started was burned to the ground.

Homeowner David Brown believes an electrical fire started the house fire, thanks to faulty wiring behind a stove.

"The smoke detectors woke me up," said Brown, upon seeing the flames Brown reached for a fire extinguisher.

The fire subsided momentarily but soon flared back up.
