HILLSBORO, OH -- Fire destroyed the shuttered Highland Enterprise Lumber business in downtown Hillsboro Sunday afternoon.
Local media described the fire as one of the biggest in the town's history. Mayor Drew Hastings said he was thankful that fire crews were able to bring the fire under control before it could spread to neighoring businesses and structures.
Witnesses saw two teen-agers running from the scene as the fire began to rage, according to the Hillsboro Times-Gazette.
Investigators were continuing to determine what caused the blaze.
The more than 100-year-old, wood-frame building was considered a city landmark by some. It has been closed since 2010.
