Furnace causes smoke

ASHTABULA — Smoke filled a Thistlewood Apartments residence Sunday evening, but no flames were seen, after the fan on a furnace malfunctioned, Ashtabula Fire Capt. Mark Calaway said.
The residents called the fire department when their apartment quickly filled with smoke. The fire department responded and located the problem quickly, Calaway said.
“There were no big flames and what fire there was, was contained to the furnace itself,” he said.
Firefighters ventilated the apartment with fans, Calaway said.
