Storage warehouse catches fire in Dayton, owner loses lifelong memorabilia

DAYTON, Ohio (WRGT) - Investigators are working to find out what caused a warehouse to catch fire late Sunday night.

Crews were called to the 1100 block of Springfield Street in Dayton shortly before 11:30 p.m., September 25.

Inside the nine-bay warehouse were high-end vehicles. District Chief James Rose told firefighters to use extreme caution but said the building was completely consumed in flames and a series of explosions could be heard when crews arrived on scene.

Power lines posed a threat for firefighters aerial positioning, but they were able to keep flames from spreading to a home and garage next door.

While no one was hurt in the blaze, we're told the owner is devastated by the loss. The storage warehouse housed a lifelong collection of memorabilia, antiques and collector items.

The total cost of damage is estimated to be between $500,000-$700,000. The Dayton Fire Department is handling the investigation.
