DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Fire officials say crews have contained a large mulch fire in Dayton.
The fire started just before 1 a.m. Friday in the parking lot of the old Meijer location on Harshman Road.
Fire officials say this is a collection area for debris from the Memorial Day tornadoes. When crews arrived, they found a large pile of debris on fire.
According to fire officials, recent warm weather caused the debris piles to heat up, which may have caused the fire.
Crews worked for nearly eight hours to knock down the fire. While fire officials say the fire is contained, crews will remain on the scene for several hours to monitor the debris piles.
No one was injured and no surrounding neighborhoods were threatened, according to fire officials.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
