GARRETSVILLE, Ohio

A firefighter was injured and 13 businesses were destroyed by a fire that swept through a historic downtown block of Garrettsville in Portage County.

The Garrettsville Police Department says that a firefighter was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation after battling the blaze Saturday. Officials say 34 local fire departments responded to the scene.

Police say that dispatchers received a call about 1:15 p.m. Saturday that “Main Street is on fire.”

Fire officials told WKYC-TV that the fire started at the corner of Center and Main streets and spread to four buildings.

State and local authorities are investigating the fire.
