RIDGEWAY – Firefighters kept a wood stove fire from spreading in a house at 3402 Bates Rd.
Firefighters were dispatched at 1:17 p.m. to the Bates Road location for a house fire. Medina, Ridgeway and Shelby firefighters all responded in the bitter cold and contained the fire.
A fire investigator from the county was expected on the scene soon to determine the cause.
