COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Residents of eight townhouses needed temporary housing after a fire burned at least five of the units in their building Wednesday.

The Colerain Township Fire Department responded to a fire on Walden Glen Circle at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. Smoke poured from the roof of the building, but no one was injured, firefighters said in a news release.

Crews got the fire under control in about 40 minutes, but extensive overhaul was required to extinguish all the hot spots, firefighters said.

Officials estimate the fire caused $150,000 in damage.

The fire appears to have been accidental.
