LAKESIDE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A fire destroyed 68 storage units in Lakeside Marblehead on Friday.

Flames broke out just after noon at Lakeside Marblehead Storage just off SR 163.

Township police say flames had engulfed the units by the time firefighters arrived. Eight fire departments were called to the scene altogether.

"They actually had a good response time," said Township Police Chief Michael Meisler. "The neighboring departments showed up. Everything worked well as far as I'm concerned."

Police say East Harbor Road was closed from Danbury School to the village limits to accommodate all the fire equipment.

One firefighter went to the hospital with minor injuries from the fire, but later returned to the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. There is currently no estimate on the cost of the damage.
