HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio - Neighbors say rescue crews worked frantically to get into the home and save the victims of a house fire along Upper Clearfork Road.
Officials from the Ohio State Fire Marshal’s Office said two people died and three others who were injured, including a woman who had to be flown to a Pittsburgh-area burn center, as the result of the blaze, which began around 7 o'clock Wednesday morning.
A neighbor's mother on scene said she believed there were five people in the house, and that her son, who lives next door, tried to help get the family out.
Crews from Scio, Jewett and Cadiz worked to put out the fire. Four units from the Fire and Explosion Investigation Bureau were on hand all afternoon investigating cause.  
The names of the victims are being withheld. The home appears to be a total loss.
