Firefighters said they found a woman on the floor inside the front door of the home in Sheffield Lake, about 20 miles west of Cleveland. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported she was taken to a hospital with burns.
Fire Lt. David Novak said a man believed to the woman’s son got out of the house before firefighters arrived about 5:40 a.m. Saturday and was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation.
Novak said three cats and four dogs were killed.
The state fire marshal’s office is helping determine the cause of the fire and loss estimate.
