West Toledo fire causes closure at Central, Jackman

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Crews were on the scene of a house fire in west Toledo that's caused temporary closure of both Central and Jackman.

The fire happened in the 1600 block of Central.  Eight trucks were on the scene fighting the fire at one point.

The flames were held to the interior of the structure.  The house is vacant and there were no injuries.

Neighbors and the Fire Chief tell us this is the second time this house has caught fire in the last year.

Drivers can avoid that area off the Interstate by exiting I-75 at Auburn from the east to cut south to Monroe, or exiting I-475 from the west at Upton to go north or south from Central.  The intersection is expected to reopen momentarily.

We have a crew at the scene of the fire and will continue to provide more information as it becomes available.
