POLAND -- Firefighters say a bottle rocket may have sparked a fire that caused $100,000 damage Friday night to the home at 3166 Hummingbird Hill Drive.
The rocket lodged in a gutter under a shingle, setting a bird's nest on fire. Flames spread to the attic.
No one was home at the time.
Western Reserve Joint Fire District firefighters arrived about 7:45 to find flames coming out of the roof. The fire was extinguished in about 30 minutes.

Among them were a 15-year-old Butler County boy, who remained hospitalized Saturday night with head and facial injuries.
A Fayette County man was in serious condition with facial fractures. Both patients' injuries were caused by M-80 explosives, police said.
A Cranberry Township man suffered burns to his face, chest, arms and legs Thursday night when an aerosol can thrown into a bonfire exploded.
2 jailed after blast
GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Two men were in Westmoreland County Jail with bond set at $100,000 each, accused of planting an explosive device that blew out windows and ripped siding off a home.
The occupant told police the two men planted the explosive Friday because he had accused one of them of stealing from him.
The man's 9-month-old daughter was asleep in a crib in the living room, where window glass was blown out.
An explosive equivalent to a half-stick of dynamite was placed near a door, police said.
The two are charged with arson, recklessly endangering another person, criminal mischief and criminal conspiracy.
