Fairlawn police charge teens in Firestone mansion fire. Reported by Amanda Garrett. A boarded-up symbol of Greater Akron’s Industrial Age prestige was destroyed by a fire that started during a moment of horse-play among four teens from Barberton and Norton, police said. The group insisted that they left the 1935 Cornus Hill Mansion without knowing that flames had spread from a pine branch that they had set on fire inside a refrigerator there. But two girls and a boy now face juvenile charges, and their friend, Donavin Gowin, 18, of Barberton, was charged with felony arson.
