JEROME TOWNSHIP -- A woman is dead and neighbors are shocked after a fire broke out in southeastern Union County Saturday morning.
Multiple agencies responded to a fire just before 6:12 AM at 7180 Scioto Road in Jerome Township.
According to the Jerome Township Fire Chief Scott Skeldon, firefighters were able to get the family in the other unit out safely.
