A weekend fire all but destroyed the downtown area of a small northeast Ohio village.

Despite the efforts of 30 different fire departments, 13 businesses along historic Main Street in Garrettsville, in Portage County were affected by the blaze. Most of the buildings were made of wood, and built in the 1800’s. The State Fire Marshal’s Office is looking into the cause.
