Fire Destroys Century-old Grandstand At Ohio Fairgrounds< < Back to
LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) – A fire has destroyed a century-old grandstand at a fairground in central Ohio.
Police in Lancaster say they are talking with a group of juveniles who were running from the Fairfield County Fairgrounds when firefighters arrived.
The fire broke out early Saturday morning.
Fire officials say the blaze is considered a possible arson because there was no electrical wiring in the grandstand.
The structure built in 1909 burned to the ground and is a total loss.
It was no longer being used after being damaged by winds.
