Fire officials believe North Side fire was arson

Youngstown firefighters responded to a fire on the city’s North Side that officials believe was intentionally set.

“I’m calling it an arson right here,” Battalion Chief Ron Russo said.

A large pile of scrap shingles ignited Wednesday afternoon in the rear of the former General Fireproofing building, where the K&M Shingle Recycling company has been operating at 24 Dennick Ave.

There is no electrical work or other utilities running through the building, and when firefighters arrived, they found a fire exting-uisher, leading officials to believe someone was there trying to put out the fire before they fled.

“They dump shingles here. It’s a dumping zone for shingles,” Russo said.

Russo said they are looking for suspects.

Nobody was hurt during the blaze, and firefighters were evacuated from the building when Russo determined it was unsafe.
