CLARK COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – Hazmat crews were called to a storage barn fire Wednesday evening after discovering old motor oil may be mixing into the ground.
The fire sparked around 7 p.m. in the 400 block of Quick Road in Bethel Township.
Crews from several neighboring departments were called to help battle the blaze. They also had to truck in water.
The barn is used for storage for a sheet metal company. Officials say some old cars were being stored there and hazmat was called to make sure some of the old motor oil doesn’t mix into the ground and a nearby stream.
No one was hurt.
The cause is still under investigation.
