HUNTINGTON, WV -

Nearly 100 fire fighters from 17 departments responded to a fire on East Second Street in Wellston yesterday evening. 

A news release from the Wellston Fire Department says the fire was contained to the first floor, but smoke damaged the upper floors and a building next door. 

At least one business has been completely destroyed, and people living in apartments were evacuated with no one injured.

The Red Cross has set up a shelter at Wellston's First Baptist Church for those displaced by the fire.

The Ohio State Fire Marshall is still trying to determine what started the blaze.
