Updated: Firefighters battling house fire late Wednesday night in Worthington
Firefighters from the Worthington Fire Territory, assisted by the Fairplay Grant/Switz City Fire Department, were on the scene of a house fire on South Jefferson Street in Worthington late Wednesday night.
They were dispatched around 11 p.m. Shortly after, a large blaze had erupted from the rear portion of the home and lit up the neighborhood.
Before 11:30 p.m., fire personnel had the large blaze knocked down but smoke was still pouring out and their job was far from over.
Neighbors said they believed the home was a rental house and they believed it was unoccupied at this time. However, that information could not be confirmed with officials on the scene.
More photos will be posted.
This story will be updated later on Thursday when more information is made available.
