OTR building collapses during fire

OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - Fire crews are on the scene of a two alarm fire in Over-the-Rhine.

The fire broke at a vacant four-story building in the 1600 block of Pleasant Street. 

The fire was raging when emergency crews arrived around 5:30 a.m. Friday morning, so firefighters quickly took a defensive posture in fighting the blaze.  It didn't take long for the building to collapse. Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to adjacent buildings.

No injuries have been reported. Investigators believe no one was in the building.

The cause remains under investigation.

We have a crew on the scene and will bring you updates on the air and on FOX19.com.
