Second fire ignites within two months at apartment building

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A fire ignited in the basement of a three-unit building in Hamilton on Monday night.

Crews say the two-alarm fire spread to the second floor of the building in the 3100 block of Dixie Highway around 6:30 p.m. An occupant of the building said he smelled smoke then saw the fire in the kitchen. He then alerted the other occupants. One person jumped from the second floor window to escape the fire.

Fire crews were on the scene for more than two hours and no one was injured.

This is the second fire at this residence in as many months. The fire is under investigation and the cause has not been determined yet.
