COLUMBUS, Ohio – A house fire near the Fairfield-Licking County line has claimed the lives of an elderly couple.

Milton and Mary Clagg, both 62, were among seven people inside the home at 13050 Shell Beach Road in Thornville when fire broke out at midnight, Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen said.

The other five occupants of the home escaped, Phalen said.
