By Staff, Voice photos

 

he house in the 45000-block which has been the scene of at least two major major incidents, one last week where a man was shot to death burned to the ground early Monday morning. Three or four months ago the local Emergency Response Team was called to the address for an incident to extricate a man who was barricaded inside.

 

In today's fire, the call went out at approximately 2:30 AM and by the time fire crews arrived the house was fully engulfed.

 

All firefighters could do was stop the flames from spreading to a home next door and to large trees in the front.

 

A youngster who lived in the home next door was upset that his house may burn down, however The Voice assured him, firefighters wouldn't let that happen.
