More than 100 Cincinnati firefighters battled a four-alarm fire Thursday night in a vacant building and by Friday morning, they were assisting with the demolition of the building.
Crews arrived at the four story building on Neave Street near Storrs just after 10 p.m. They found fire burning on every level.
The intense heat and flames kept firefighters from being able to get inside. Because the fire was so intense and the outside temperature and humidity so great, firefighters called in extra crews and received help from the Red Cross as they worked to keep crews hydrated and cool.
No one was hurt. Investigators are still trying to find a cause.
Because of massive damage to the home, fire crews are now tearing down the building. Streets in the area, including Neave Street, remain closed on Friday as the demolition work continues.
