CHAMPAIGN CO., Ohio (WDTN) – Firefighters say a Champaign County homeowner did the right thing when his home caught fire.

Crews were called to a home on East Dallas Road just after 2:00 p.m. When they arrived, the home was engulfed.

It took as four different departments to get the flames under control.

Investigators said the homeowner smelled smoke and rather than staying inside the home to investigate, he got out and called for help.

No word on what caused the fire.
