SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH -- Fire crews battled a large blaze Friday evening at a printing company in Springfield Township.

The call came in around 5:10 p.m. from AA Blueprint at 2757 Gilchrist Road.

According to company owner Daisy Scalia, 8 people were inside at the time and were just about to leave for the day. A maintenance worker smelled smoke and saw flames coming from the roof. He tried to address the problem himself as fire crews arrived.

Scalia said the building was having roofing problems. In just the last week, a worker started repairs on the roof.

Fire crews said the roof was fully engulfed upon arrival. Only the roof sustained damage.

Because the printing company houses paper and chemicals, firefighters were going through the building to make sure there were no other hazards.

No one was injured.
