BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) - A Bond Hill home was damaged in a fire on Sunday night.
Flames broke out in the 7300 block of Scottwood Ave. around 10:30 p.m. Sunday.
When fire crews arrived, they found heavy black smoke coming from the second floor of the single-family home.
Investigation revealed the fire started in a bedroom when the occupant of the home was treating the room for bedbugs with a 70 percent alcohol and bug killer solution. She entered the room to move the mattress while she was in there, lit a cigarette. Investigators say the fumes in the bedroom ignited and caught the mattress on fire. The occupant tried to put out the fire herself and was unsuccessful.
