BUCKEYE LAKE- Luckily, a Buckeye Lake rental property was vacant and no one was injured when the house erupted into flames at approximately 5 a.m. Wednesday morning. Firefighters from the Buckeye Lake, Hebron, Millersport, Licking Township, Thurston- Walnut Township, Thornville, West Licking, and Heath fire departments responded to the scene at 25 W. 4th Street. Buckeye Lake Fire Department Captain Toby Miller said the cause of the fire remains under investigation. He said so many fire departments became involved because the intense heat forced firefighters to relieve each other often as the blaze was contained. Beacon photo by Scott Rawdon.
