JEROMESVILLE, Ohio — A massive fire destroyed an Ashland County business Friday night for the second time in more than a year.

Jeromesville firefighters responded just before 9 p.m. to Restoration Maintenance in the 1500 block of State Route 89. The building was fully engulfed in flames when crews arrived, according to Assistant Fire Chief John Cutlip.

It took nearly 15 fire vehicles to put out the fire, which had spread throughout the building and had caused the roof to collapse.

Several neighboring departments assisted Jeromesville crews with the blaze.

No one was injured.

The building and all of its contents were a total loss, Cutlip said. It’s the second time that a fire destroyed it. Back in the spring of 2011, another blaze burned the structure to the ground.

The State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
