Arriving on scene quickly, fire service personnel began to battle the 2-alarm blaze. Law enforcement closed motorist access on 1st Street West from 23rd to 18 Avenue W. to provide firefighters with space needed and to keep the public safe.

The fire affected multiple floors of a residential building before spreading to an adjacent residence.

"On Monday at 2:50 p.m., the Dickinson Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 1900 block of 1st Street W. Prior to DFD's arrival, the fire spread to a second home," Jeremy Presnell, Dickinson Fire Department chief, said. "DFD quickly arrived on-scene extinguishing the fire shortly after arrival. The occupants were alerted to the fire by a passerby, and smoke detectors."

Presnell said that no injuries were sustained on the scene, but that both structures sustained smoke and fire damage.

"Working smoke detectors save lives. As a reminder when you change your clock, change your batteries," Presnell cautioned.

The Dickinson Fire Department, Dickinson Rural Fire Department, Dickinson Police Department, Dickinson Area Ambulance and Stark County Sheriff's Office personnel assisted on scene.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
