HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – Fire officials say two buildings and part of a third were destroyed by a fire Tuesday evening.

It happened at the Lapp Roofing building at the corner of Belfonte and Ome Avenues around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

One of the buildings destroyed housed vintage cars, the other was an office building.

No one was hurt, but crews said they had trouble getting high enough water pressure from nearby fire hydrants.

Crews had to shut down power while they were battling the flames, but they say it will be restored within a few hours.

The Ohio Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire.
