Furnace may be cause of multiunit house fire

A faulty furnace is believed to have caused a fire in a multiunit house in West Toledo yesterday.

Firefighters were called to the house at 837 Underwood Ave. near Victory Avenue about 10 a.m. and found the fire in a first-floor unit. The occupant was home at the time but escaped unhurt, authorities said. The house is separated into six apartments.

The fire traveled up the wall and into a second-floor unit directly above where the fire started. A damage estimate was not available yesterday.

The two-story wood-frame house, built in 1926, is owned by Valleywood Properties LLC, according to the Lucas County Auditor s Web site.
