MANCHESTER, Ohio (WKRC) - A fire in the heart of Manchester destroyed a business and left several families looking for a new place to call home.

The flames broke out in one of the apartments above Caps Auto Parts at about 6 a.m. Tuesday.

When sheriff deputies and firefighters arrived they helped some of the residents get out. A handful were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

The building, which is nearly a 100 years old, is a total loss. Five or six families lived in the apartment.

Manchester firefighters, along with crews from West Union, Ripley and Aberdeeen, responded to the fire.
