Area fire crews extinguished a blaze early Wednesday at an old house off Monroe Street in Sylvania that was used the morning before for a fire training session involving local politicians, authorities said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
The home is one of two vacant houses along Ten Mile Creek that the Sylvania Township Fire Department is using for training before the site is cleared to become city parkland.
On Tuesday morning, two Sylvania Township trustees and two Sylvania City Council members took turns accompanying firefighters into the home as part of the "Feel the Heat" program.
