LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (WXIX) - Multiple fire crews responded to an early morning fire in downtown Lawrenceburg Tuesday.

Flames broke out inside a video game store on the first level of a three-story building in the 300 block of Walnut Street shortly after 4 a.m. Tuesday, Lawrenceburg Fire Chief Johnnie Tremain.

Initially, three Indiana fire departments - Lawrenceburg, Greendale and Aurora - tried to contain the blaze and then requested additional assistance.

Fire crews from Ohio, in Miamitown and Whitewater Township, responded to help them knock the bulk of the fire down, dispatchers say.

Fire officials were concerned flames could spread to other buildings that are attached on both sides.

No injuries were reported.
