BEAVERCREEK, Ohio — A Beaver-creek house fire early Sunday morning left two people dead, and fire investigators said functioning smoke detectors may have saved their lives.
Fire engulfed the house, located at 2575 Wendover Drive, around 4 a.m., said Beaver-creek Battalion Chief Greg Connors. Neighbor Ben Clonch said he called 911 after he spotted flames shooting from the home across the street from his own.
