EVENDALE, OH (FOX19) - A fire has severely damaged a home in Evendale.

Fire investigators say a man left his home in the 10800 block of Wayscarver Road and left his stove on. When he got back around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night, it was on fire.

Crews got to the scene pretty quickly and knocked it down, although it took a long time to get all the trucks in place and to clear the scene. The home sits down a steep hill off of a narrow road, but there was a fire hydrant near the home.

There was extensive damage to the home, but no one was hurt.

Crews had to go back to the scene Thursday morning to put out hotspots.
