One firefighter was injured as a Crocus Place house went up in flames.
Capt. David Polacek, the Barberton Fire Department’s newly promoted fire marshal, said the injury was minor.
Polacek said the department got the call at 2:36 p.m. and were on scene within three minutes, finding the house fully involved.
Polacek said the house was unoccupied at the time, the residents having left shortly before the fire.
Helping Barberton battle the blaze were crews from Norton, New Franklin and Coventry.
The cause had not been determined by that evening and the investigation was ongoing.

    If you know what company came from a restoration service after the fire could you please contact them. I live in the high rise directly behind the house that the fire took place at and the tarp that the restoration company put on the roof to close up the house is coming off. Thank you.
