Four apartments damaged in Dublin fire


DUBLIN, Ohio (WCMH) — Four apartments were damaged by a fire in Dublin Saturday afternoon.

The fire was called out at 5:33 p.m. on the 4800 block of Aspen Pine Boulevard.

According to Columbus Fire Battalion Chief Steve Martin, there were no injuries reported.

Martin said the cause of the fire was an electrical issue in the attic of the building.

Fire officials said the fire was quickly contained due to the apartments’ firewalls, which separate each unit through the attic.

“In this case, the firewall held up really well, and it kept all that heat, smoke, water out of the other apartments,” Martin said. “So I’m sure those folks are very happy about it.”

Martin said the fire department responded in large numbers due to the heat and the fear that it could help the fire spread faster.

In addition to Columbus Fire, crews from Washington Township and Norwich Township fire departments responded to the call.
