Fire Destroys Wheeling House – Damages Church

A fire Monday at 303 North 4th Street in Wheeling destroyed a home and left a neighboring church with some damage.  Wheeling Fire Chief Darrin Fravel says they received the call at about 5:20 am Monday and were on the scene for just over nine hours.  The State Fire Marshall’s office was called to investigate the cause of the fire.  That investigation continues.

Two departments were called and provided mutual aid, including Chillicothe Rural Fire and Meadville.

Fravel says the damage to the church included some windows and vinyl siding.
