Fire erupts at the Park Building on Cleveland's Public Square

(Cuyahoga County) - Cleveland firefighters had to battle a Triple 3 Alarm blaze in the Park Building on Public Square, in the heart of downtown this afternoon.

About 60 firefighters rushed to the scene just before 1pm. Flames erupted in a first floor garage, under 4 stories of apartments.

Sixteen of the units were occupied, and 2 were empty. Fire Chief Angelo Cavillo says fortunately no one was home as the flames and smoke began to rise to the upper levels.

Cavillo says his crew was able to knock out a few walls and douse the fire. It took about an hour to bring the blaze under control.

No one was hurt, the fire remains under investigation.
