MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- A fire at a vacant warehouse is considered suspicious for now, according to a Middletown fire official.

Capt. Jon Harvey told the Journal-News that the building, located on Verity Parkway near Park Street, has been empty for decades. It also had no power.

The fire started at about 11:30 p.m. Friday. The Middletown Division of Fire got help from Franklin, Monroe and Madison Township.

No injuries are reported, Harvey said. Verity Parkway and smaller roads behind the building were closed early Saturday morning.
