Massive Fire Under Investigation

(Toledo, OH) A cleanup is underway today at the scene of a devastating apartment building fire.

An investigation also is underway into the cause of that massive fire in an uptown Toledo apartment building. Firefighters were called Tuesday to battle heavy smoke and flames that filled the Wachter Building at 16th and Adams streets. 

Nearly two dozen residents were evacuated without injuries, but many lost everything they owned. The Northwest Ohio Red Cross is helping residents with food, clothing and shelter.

The Village on Adams, a collective of neighborhood bars and restaurants near the fire scene, has set up donation collection sites to help displaced tenants. Locations for people to donate include the Attic on Adams, Handmade Toledo, and Market on the Green.
