According to another tweet by the fire department, fires have taken over all floors of brewery, and the department reported that the building's over-a-century-old structure has been a challenge for their teams.
A report by WCPO stated that since the fire department arrived, part of the warehouse and roof have collapsed. "Firefighters on scene said the former brewery is a 'total loss,' and they expect the rest of the building to collapse," WCPO's Jasmine Minor and Zach McAuliffe reported.
