Large fire destroys Corryville home

CORRYVILLE, OH (FOX19) - A large fire has destroyed a home in Corryville.

Flames broke out on East McMillan about 6:20 a.m. When firefighters arrived, they found heavy flames on the first floor.

They fought the fire for about 10 minutes in the house before the chief decided to take a defensive stance after no progress was made. They also had to keep the fire from spreading to other residences.

The man who lives there did make it out all right, and no firefighters were injured.
