Cleveland, OH (February 3, 2022) – A house fire in Cleveland on Thursday morning, February 3, left one woman in critical condition. The incident took place at a residence in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood at the 12400 block of Signet Avenue.
A three-story home was reportedly engulfed in flames. The extent of the flames and weather issues required that firefighters attack from the exterior of the home. An adult female inside the home was found by emergency crews.
The injured party was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
An ongoing investigation into the incident is underway.
