Fire damages warehouse

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Arson investigators were on the scene of a fire in an empty warehouse south of downtown Columbus this morning.

No injuries were reported in the fire at the one-time home of Borchers Carpet Cleaning, 762 S. Front Street, Firefighter William Ehrgood, Columbus Division of Fire spokesman, said.

Firefighters found flames shooting out of the roof of the building when they arrived shortly before 4:00 a.m. and went into a “defensive mode,” Ehrgood said.

Arson investigators were called to the scene but had not begun their probe early Monday morning because hot spots made it too dangerous.

Ehrgood says fire officials were led to believe the building was sometimes used by squatters.

    REVIEW: ‘It Follows’ is the best American horror film in a decade

    In this image released by Brigade Marketing, actress Maika Monroe appears in a scene of It Follows, directed by David Robert Mitchell. “It Follows,” has been arguably the buzziest American film at Cannes next to Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama “Foxcatcher,” which boasts a far more famous cast and a major premiere at the Palais des Festival.

    "It Follows" is a horror movie worthy of classic comparisons.
