Fire Jumps From Building To Building In Guthrie Township

Last updated on Friday, September 14, 2007

(GUTHRIE) - Three storage buildings caught fire early yesterday morning in Guthrie Township.

Shortly before 3:30 in the morning, Lawrence County sheriff's office got a call on a fire on sunset road which they referred to the Guthrie Volunteer Fire Department.

Guthrie Fire Chief Brian Hutchinson told WBIW News 3 storage buildings were completely involved by the time they arrived.

Hutchinson said the cause of the fire has not yet been determined since the buildings were so far gone by the time they got there.

Two of the buildings are reported as being connected, the 3rd was across an alleyway, with a dog kennel nearby.

Chief Hutchinson said the dryness of everything right now is turning everything into potential kindling. He also said none of the dogs were hurt during the blaze.
