      Second fire at Sylvania Twp. home in less than 24-hours

      A first fire broke out at a home on Heather Place Tuesday.

      A Sylvania Township home caught fire for the second time in less than 24-hours early Wednesday morning.

      The second blaze broke out in the 500-block of Heather Pl., near Alexis and Whiteford.

      The fire broke out in a bedroom of the same home late Tuesday morning. A mother and her four children were able to escape the flames thanks in large part to working smoke detectors in the home.

      Early Wednesday, neighbors reported hearing loud booms just before the second fire broke out at the home. No one was hurt.

      The mother was treated for smoke inhalation after the first fire.

      The fires come within a day after multiple fires ripped through a Rossford home.
