Firefighters from seven departments spent most of Thursday afternoon battling a fire at Southside Self Storage in Parkersburg, W.V. Lubeck Volunteer Fire Chief Mark Stewart said the fire is believed suspicious, and the state fire marshal is investigating, according to a story by WTAP 5.
Firefighters were able to confine the damage to a single building, and there were no injuries. Eleven units of 50 units were condemned, however, and many of the facility’s tenants lost personal items.
Facility owner Don Hohman of California also owns the mobile-home court next door. He has been in discussions with Wood County about the future of the mobile-home property.
