Fire at building on Court Street is arson
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Fire investigators say the Court Street fire is an arson and they are looking for a suspect. That building is now a crime scene.
The building used to house Fox's Clothing Store. Firefighters searched the building for anyone who might be inside. They rescued two squatters who were trapped on the fourth floor. Investigators are now questioning them. A man who identified himself as the building manager says he climbed up to the roof and went down a fire escape.
A witness tells Local 12 she hears a loud boom then saw crews rush to the building. All she could see was smoke and firefighters trying to get into the building.
The street has been blocked off recently so that the move "Carol" could be filmed at this building. Cast and crew members were often seen on the first floor. The building is currently under construction.
