A small, unat­tached apart­ment near Wauseon was destroyed by fire early Mon­day morn­ing.

The fire was reported around 1:45am at 16520 Ohio 2 by a passerby.

The build­ing, owned by Wen­dell Wood, was being used for stor­age and had been unoc­cu­pied for a long time.

When fire crews arrived, the build­ing was com­pletely engulfed in flames. It’s been ruled a total loss, and dam­age has been esti­mated at around $20,000.

The cause is still under inves­ti­ga­tion due to the fact that there was no elec­tric­ity con­nected to the build­ing and no obvi­ous fuel source.

No one was hurt.
