CFD investigates storage building fire

Columbus Firefighters are investigating an early Friday morning fire that destroyed a storage building in the 900 block of Union Street.

Crews arrived on the scene around 4:37 a.m. to find a fully engulfed wood storage shed behind 926 Union Street. The fire was located at the rear of the rental property, away from other homes or buildings. Portions of the roughly 8’ x 10’ building had collapsed prior to firefighters arrival. Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames within minutes.

The cause of the fire is undetermined and damages are estimated at less than $1,000. No one was hurt.

Capt. Mike Wilson, spokesman for the Columbus Fire Department, says that CFD firefighters have responded to three detached storage building fires in this area since August. Authorities ask you to report any suspicious activity to 911.
