(Over-the-Rhine) -- Cincinnati Fire Department says damage to two vacant apartment buildings is estimated at $3,000 and #2,000, after a Monday evening fire. The flames broke out between the two structures, at Vine and Findlay, and spread to the first floors before they were extinguished.
A second alarm was called, because the buildings were large, and difficult to get into. The flames were extinguished in about 30 minutes.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
