A very unfortunate start to the New Year as two people have died in a home fire early Thursday(1/2/20) morning. Perry Township Fire Department was called to a fire just after 6 o’clock at 4601 McPheron Road. Scanner traffic says two people were trapped inside the home when the call came in and both died in the blaze. Their names have not been released yet, we are waiting on the Allen County Coroner’s Office to release their identity. Perry Township called in additional fire departments including Bath, Harrod, and Lafayette for manpower and water. The Ohio Fire Marshal's office was brought in to help with the investigation. So they can determine a cause, they will try to pinpoint where the fire started.
