The Zanesville Fire Department was called to an early Thursday morning house fire. It happened at 1439 Bluff Street starting around 6:00 am. Chief Jeff Bell says his fire crews were clearing from a fire call at the Holiday Inn Express when they were summoned to Bluff Street. When crews arrived on the scene, the front of the house was fully involved in flames. Bell says the occupant of the home, Jamie Wheeler, was at work and not home at the time of the blaze. The home is owned by her brother. The home suffered serious damage and is likely a total loss. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
