Apartment fire in West Toledo causes $15,000 in damages


A utility room fire Friday morning caused an estimated $15,000 in damages to Ravenswood Apartments in West Toledo, authorities said.

The first fire crews arrived about 8:45 a.m., saw flames coming from a first floor apartment at 4640 Talmadge Rd., and evacuated the building.

The residents of the apartment weren’t home at the time, said Toledo Fire Battalion Chief Tony Gregory. There were no injuries, he said.

It took firefighters about 15 minutes to extinguish the fire, which was limited to the apartment. The fire was caused by an electrical short in the utility room, the battalion chief said.

The damage estimate included the contents of the apartment.
