2 missing in central OH house fire

BUCKEYE LAKE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say two people are still unaccounted for following a large house fire in central Ohio.

It happened early Thursday near Buckeye Lake in Fairfield County, east of Columbus.

Units from multiple agencies responded just after midnight to fight the blaze, which was made more difficult by frigid temperatures.

Other residents got out safely, and nobody else was hurt. The house was destroyed.

Firefighters continue to search for the missing residents and determine the cause of the fire.
