Fire destroys vacant Hamilton home, spreads to 2 others

Fire tears through multiple homes in Hamilton

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Fire destroyed a vacant home and spread to two others, sending two families into the cold in Hamilton early Wednesday, fire officials said.

Several people called 911 to report fire and smoke at homes in the 600 block of Ludlow Street, according to Butler County dispatchers.

The fire was so large, residents who live several streets over also called 911, they said.

Hamilton fire crews requested help from neighboring fire departments.

Fairfield Township, Ross Township and Hanover Township fire departments all responded, dispatchers said.

No injuries were reported, but two families - including a mother and child- were pulled out, Shaw said.

The cause and estimated damage remain under investigation.
