CHARDON, Ohio-- More than a dozen fire departments responded to a fire at a Chardon body shop Thursday night.

A police officer noticed smoke at Chardon Square Auto Repair, located on Water Street, shortly after 10 p.m. The fire department arrived a few minutes later.

The Chardon Fire Department said the fire burned the length of the building, causing the roof to collapse. Sections of the facility had a pitched roof built over a flat roof, which sandwiched the fire in between and made it difficult for firefighting.

No one was in the building at the time. No injuries were reported.
