Fire at Bond Hill home is third in one week

BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) - A Bond Hill home caught fire for the third time in one week Wednesday morning, according to officials.

Flames from the two-story home could be seen from the Norwood Lateral when crews responded to Yarmouth Avenue near Oberlin around 4:30 a.m. The home was empty and without electricity.

The blaze went through the roof and firefighters used a ladder to drop water into the burning building. The fire appeared to be contained around 5:30 a.m.

District Chief Michael Washington said crews fought a fire at the home on Friday night and one other time in the past week. The fires are considered suspicious and under investigation, said Washington.

Cincinnati has seen a string of suspicious fires in the past week. Two house fires broke out in the same Avondale block last Friday. The blazes were the second and third suspicious ones that occurred in the neighborhood in 12 hours,
