Over-the-Rhine's historic Jackson Brewery caught on fire early Sunday morning. Cincinnati Fire Department reported the "two alarm fire" at around 4:25 a.m. on Sunday morning via their Twitter account and crews have been battling the flames since. 

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.
