CINCINNATI — At least 70 firefighters with the Cincinnati Fire Department fought a four-alarm, multi-building fire in CUF, Monday morning, according to officials with the Cincinnati Fire Department.
"I went to the window and the fire department, police, were everywhere and the smoke was real thick," Brenda Masur, a neighbor who lives near the scene, said. "I was afraid it was going to spread over even more and there's kids that live in the white house..."
Around 4:30 a.m., fire crews responded near the intersection of Addison and Halstead streets for a large fire which started in one building. According to Fire Chief Roy Winston, the fire spread to at least four nearby buildings, and the initial building partially collapsed.
Firefighters rescued one woman in a wheelchair from the conflagration, but no one else was injured.
