Sat., 3:43pm: UPDATE Multiple businesses ablaze in Garrettsville

At least two businesses and possibly a third are involved in a large fire that broke out this afternoon on Main Street in Garrettsville, a witness on the scene told a Tribune Chronicle reporter by phone.

Michelle Rosenbaum, owner of the Game Emporium on State Street, said the fire, which is visible from her storefront began shortly after 1 p.m. today.

The challenge for firefighters lies in the fact that the buildings are so close together, some of which have multiple storefronts per building, she said.

This is a developing story. For the full report, read Sundays Tribune Chronicle.
