CAMDEN TWP. — Firefighters are battling a house fire on State Route 303 in near-whiteout conditions as a snowstorm blows in.

Firefighters were called shortly before 1 p.m. to a house on Route 303. Resident Krystal Underwood said she had a fire burning in the house’s fireplace, but the space between the fireplace and wall caught fire.

Underwood was the only person home at the time. Firefighters were able to save her son’s pet turtle. Departments from Camden Township and Oberlin battled the blaze, and sheriff’s deputies are directing traffic. Route 303 is closed between Quarry Road in Pittsfield Township and Rowell Road in Camden Township.
