Beacon Journal staff report
Ravenna police responding to a report of a burglary at the Fortis College on Friday morning found an injured worker outside and a small fire inside of the building.
The initial call for help came in at 6:24 a.m.
The worker at the college on Enterprise Parkway told officers that she had been attacked inside the Fortis College building and during the attack a small fire was started in a hallway.
The worker ran from Fortis College, police say, to the nearby Paris Healthcare building. Paris workers were able to put out the fire.
The worker from the college suffered burns and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Ravenna Police Capt. Dave Rarrick said officers checked “the interior and exterior of the Fortis College building” and did not locate any other persons.
The city’s detective bureau and the Portage County Arson Investigation Unit are investigating the incident.
Rarrick said evidence collected from the scene is being sent to the State Fire Marshall’s lab for analysis.
Any person with additional information about the fire is asked to call Ravenna police at 330-296-6486.
