Firefighters have contained a blaze in the area of a state park in southern Ohio.

The fire was reported Tuesday afternoon near Scioto Trail State Park, roughly 15 minutes south of Chillicothe. There was no word on how the fire began.

Franklin Township Fire Chief Mike Menendez tells the Chillicothe Gazette that the fire burned an estimated 25 to 35 acres of state property. He says it came within about 100 feet of several homes, but none were damaged and no one was hurt.
