CINCINNATI - A forklift fire at a Cincinnati high school caused about $100,000 in damage Friday.
The forklift and surrounding pallets of foam and wooden roofing materials caught fire Friday afternoon and caused some streets to be shut down. A police officer was stationed at Belmont and Hamilton avenues to help on the scene. Onlookers reported heavy smoke from the fire.
Firefighters said the blaze was hard to put out because the fire was far from paved roads and had no working fire hydrant near it. Extra fire stations were called to the scene to help relay water from 2,000 feet away.
No civilians or any of the 37 firefighters on scene were injured. Firefighters have not yet determined a cause for the blaze.
