URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) – URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) – Twenty people were forced from the Urbana building they live in after it caught fire Thursday.

The fire started in the rear of the building at 113 S. Main St.

Firefighters said strong winds caused the fire to spread to a storage room and then to the roof.

A firefighter was injured in a fall off a ladder. His name and condition have not been released.

None of the residents were hurt, but all will likely have to find a new place to stay due to the heavy damage to the structure.
