HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

An overnight fire in Hamilton has caused around $60 thousand in damage to a local business.

The Hamilton Fire Department responded to Dixie Tire located in the 2200 block of Dixie Highway around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Upon arrival, crews found fire coming from the east side of the one story building.  

Firefighters say that they had to contend with a large amount of vehicle tires inside the building which blocked their entrance. Crews say that the blocked entryway caused the fire to burn more intensely and the smoke was darker than usual.

Damage has been estimated at $60,000.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
