No injuries reported.
A house fire at 2260 Blackwater Road sent area fire departments scurrying Tuesday night at around 9pm.
The Ross County Sheriff closed Blackwater Road to assist firefighters in the effort. The road was closed through midnight.
Green, Union, Colerain, Laurelville and Pickaway fire departments responded.
While Clear Channel News was initially told by a firefighter on scene that no one had been in the home at the time, the Ross County Sheriff's Office has since confirmed passing motorists saw smoke coming from the home and notified the lone occupant, who was able to escape.
According to the Sheriff's Office, the State Fire Marshall's Office has been contacted to investigate the cause of fire.
