Fire causes $150,000 in damage

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        FAIRFIELD — A two-alarm fire about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday heavily damaged a building that houses two businesses.

        Fairfield Fire Chief Doug Bennett estimated damage at more than $150,000 to the building at 4380 Pleasant Avenue that houses Inter-Financial Insurance Agency and Innovata.

        No one was in the building at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.

        The building is adjacent to the Fairfield Municipal Building, which also had smoke damage, Chief Bennett said.

        The cause of the fire and which part of the building it sparked from still was under investigation late Tuesday.

        Dan Hatfield, owner of the insurance agency, said he and six other employees left shortly after 5 p.m. and had no idea how the fire started.

        The entire Fairfield Fire Department — 35 firefighters — responded to the scene while neighboring Forest Park Fire Department covered the city.
