Fire In Edgerton!

A fire Wednes­day morn­ing in Edger­ton that dam­aged a home on Ohio 49 could have been much worse.

It was a passerby who saw flames, and stopped to honk his car horn to wake up the peo­ple inside.

Accord­ing to the Edger­ton Fire Depart­ment, crews responded at 5:23 a.m., to 03424 Ohio 49, just south of the Williams-Defiance county line.

The blaze is believed to have been started by a wood burner. For­tu­nately, due to the quick think­ing of the passerby and the home­owner, the house is still liv­able, but dam­age, pend­ing the arrival of the insur­ance adjus­tor, is prob­a­bly in the range of $10,000 or so. The roof and some of the trusses were destroyed.

Nobody was hurt, and the Edger­ton Fire Depart­ment was wrapped up there by a lit­tle after 7:30 yes­ter­day morning.
