COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus firefighters hauled water to a blaze at an outbuilding at a concrete plant after it was reported on fire Saturday evening, but the outbuilding is being declared a total loss.

No one was injured in the fire which occurred at Anderson Concrete in the 1700 block of Haul Road. A neighbor and a security guard each called for firefighters at 9 p.m.

The fire was in an outbuilding of the company which was about 60 feet by 60 feet in size.

No one was injured in the effort to put out the fire, which was hampered because there are no nearby hydrants and water had to be hauled into the scene.

Officials said that crews would watch the fire overnight to prevent any rekindles.

The cause cannot be determined until investigators can get into the wreckage of the building whose roof collapsed.

The dollar amount of damage is not available, but investigators say it does appear to be a total loss.
