A two-story residence in Alvada caught fire Monday afternoon, causing damage throughout the structure.

One NBS firefighter was transported to the hospital after he overheated, Staib said.

He said Bascom, McCutchenville and Fostoria firefighters provided mutual aid at the fire. New Riegel EMS, Bascom EMS and the Seneca County Chaplain Corps also were at the scene. Staib said firefighters were at the scene until about 6 p.m.
