Legal age to stay home alone

I was wondering if there is a legal age in Ohio that a child is permitted to stay at home alone and if there is what is the age? My son's father has been letting him stay at home with his younger brother (ages 9 & 7) while he runs errons like grocery shopping, picking up pizza etc. My son told me about it for the first time last week and said that his dad does it all the time. Can you let me know? Thank you in advance.
