CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati firefighters responded to a fire in Westwood just after midnight Monday morning, after smoke was seen coming from a home in the 2900 block of Mignon Ave. 

The source of the fire was identified as the fireplace the occupants were using to heat their home.

Smoke detectors installed in the home warned the owners in time to prevent injuries and limit damage to the building, which has been estimated at $8,000.

The Cincinnati Fire Department recommends that fireplaces that have not been used recently be inspected before resuming use.
