CRAIG BEACH, Ohio (WKBN) - A family in Craig Beach is staying with family after a fire destroyed their home late Tuesday. The fire broke out about 11:15 p.m. at a home on Idylwild Avenue. By the time firefighters arrived, the house was engulfed in flames. Nicole Yereb said she and her boyfriend had just put their 4-year-old son to bed when the fire started. “We heard a pop, so I opened the door to our foyer and the entire house was filled with smoke,” she said. “I ran upstairs and I grabbed my son, and I brought him outside and ran back in to get my two dogs and my cats.” PHOTOS: Fire at Craig Beach home Everyone made it out safely except for one dog. Yereb said she hopes it just ran away. “One came out onto our back deck and the other one I didn’t see him come out, so I don’t know if he did.” Yereb said it was excruciating watching her home burn as she waited for firefighters to arrive. She said she called 911 three times. Her 911 call went to the Austintown Police Department, then to the Sebring Fire Department and then to Craig Beach. “I was so distraught. I yelled my address to them and I repeated it to them," Yereb said. “Me losing everything is not OK when it could have been avoided.” Craig Beach 911 call: "My house is on fire, please hurry!" 911 logs indicate that emergency crews were notified seconds after receiving the call. Tanker trucks were called to truck in water. Crews from nine local departments helped fight the fire. Craig Beach Fire Chief Sherman Yeager was still on the scene at 5:30 a.m. He said the state fire marshal was called and should be there early Wednesday. Yeager said as far as the response time, the village has an all-volunteer department like many other municipalities, and it does take time to assemble a crew. He said Craig Beach was the first department on scene, followed by Milton Township. He said when crews got there, the fire was "roaring." Lovern, K. (2019, April 25).
