BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – The state fire marshal sets the damage from an apartment fire in Beavercreek at a million dollars.

Investigators believe the fire at the Stonebridge Apartments just off Stroop Road started in a trash can that was sitting on a wooden deck to one of the second floor apartment units.

The fire in August damaged 18 units in one building at the complex.

50 people lost their homes, but luckily, no one was hurt.
