Mother, 3 children escape South Toledo house fire that spread to neighboring home


A mother and her three young children escaped injury today when a fire broke out inside their South Toledo home.

The fire in the second-story of 806 Vinton St. was reported just before 2:30 p.m. It quickly spread to the roof and attic of a home at 804 Vinton St., where firefighters remain on scene. When authorities arrived, the woman and her children, ages 7, 2, and 1, were outside of the home. 

The cause is believed to be accidental and stemming from radiator heat inside the structure.
