PHILLIPSBURG, Ohio (WDTN) – A fire in Montgomery County is being labeled an arson.

Phillipsburg firefighters joined eight other departments to battle the fire in the 9200 block of Wengerlawn Road Tuesday night.

They say no one was living in the home at the time. The owner uses it for storage.

Fire crews say the flames spread quickly as the house was stuffed full with property.

One firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation, but is okay.

No one else is hurt.
