Cincinnati (OH) Firefighters Battle Three-Alarm Fire

Cincinnati (OH) firefighters responded to a fire last night that went to three alarms in a reportedly vacant structure.

According to the department’s Twitter account, the building at 861 Buena Vista Place was built in 1910 and its construction proved problematic for firefighting, with a stubborn fire in the cockloft space.

Firefighters operated defensively at the scene, with companies contending with extremely smoky conditions and lack of interior access to the building.
