Update: Fire under investigation
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A total of five homes were damaged early on the morning of Nov. 10 in Huntington and now police are investigating how the fire started inside an abandoned home.
Dispatchers say they got the call just after 1:30 a.m. when someone called in to say it appeared their neighbor’s home was on fire.
Crews rushed to the scene along the 2200 block of 10th Ave.
Dispatchers tell WSAZ everyone got out of the home safely.
While firefighters tell WSAZ the fire started inside an abandoned home, it ended up spreading to surrounding homes, causing the damage.
No injuries have been reported.
Huntington Police Chief Karl Colder said, “This is now under investigation as individuals may have been seen leaving the dwelling during the incident and the fire spread to other residences.”
