The Fairfield County Sheriff's office and the Ohio Division of State Fire Marshal continue to search for a Lancaster man missing after a house fire.

State Fire Marshal spokesman Shane Cartmill says the sheriff's office plans to search Friday the woods near the scene of Monday's fire.
Mark Johnson lived at the home on Eckert Road with his two children.
The children were not home at the time of the fire, but Johnson has not been heard from since November 27.
Cartmill says officers are asking hunters in the area to refrain from hunting from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and exercise extra caution.
Anyone with information about Johnson's whereabouts is asked to call the Fairfield County sheriff's department.
