Three separate fires reported in Hamilton

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Firefighters were called to three working fires while on duty Tuesday in Hamilton.

The first happened around 5:15 p.m. in the 1300 block of Ross Avenue for a fire in the large shelter house at Millikin Woods Park. Crews found the shelter house up in flames and said the frame sections of the structure were already a total loss upon arrival.

Emergency crews also responded to the 800 block of Hight Street around 8:45 p.m. and found a working fire in a garage next to the Wendy's parking lot. Authorities said the fire extended to the phone poles, phone service wires and electrical services overhead.

The falling electrical services created additional hazards, according to fire officials. As a result, the electrical trouble shooter was called to the scene and secured the power in the downed lines.

The third blaze was reported just before 2 a.m. Wednesday by an engine company that was called for an odor of smoke in the area near 11th and Buckeye streets. Crews found an unoccupied house fire in the 300 block of North 11th Street. 

The fire was found on the second floor of the home and quickly extinguished.

Authorities say no injuries were reported at any of the fires. The cause of each blaze remains under investigation.
