Large fire damages Hamilton home

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - An adult and a child have been displaced after a large fire at their Hamilton home.

Flames broke out at a home in the 600 block of Liberty Avenue at around 1 a.m. Friday morning.

Upon arrival, firefighters found heavy fire showing from the doors and windows of the first floor of the home. The fire was attacked from the inside and knocked down quickly.

An adjacent home suffered minor damage.

No one was home at the time and no one was hurt. Damage is estimated at $45,000.

Due to the large volume of fire and extreme heat of the blaze, the contents of the first floor are a total loss, but the structure remains intact.

The investigation is ongoing.
