VALLEY CITY, Ohio (WOIO) - The Valley City Fire Department responded to a fire on Abbeyville Road Sunday.

When firefighters arrived fire was visible in the attic and at the back of the two-story dwelling, according to a Valley City Fire Department Facebook post.

Multiple departments were called in to help because of the distance of the structure from a fire hydrant; Brunswick, Brunswick Hills, Erhart, Hinckley, Litchfield, Medina, Granger, Lafayette, Grafton Twp. and Medina County Sheriffs Department all responded.

The nearest hydrant was 2,000 feet away, according to the post. Firefighters used a large diameter hose to bring water to the fire.
