BEREA, Ohio — People living in Berea’s Longbrooke neighborhood might have to find a new place to swim for a while.

Fire destroyed the pump building at the neighborhood pool.

Firefighters from the Berea Fire Department responded to the Longbrooke Neighborhood Pool around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

They said they got the fire under control in about 10 minutes, but the building that houses the pumps for the pool is a total loss.

A captain with the fire department said it was unlikely the pool would be able to reopen until the pumps were repaired or replaced.
