No one was hurt when a fire engulfed several buildings on Saturday afternoon in East Wheeling.

The Wheeling Fire Department was dispatched to the 1400 block of Jacob Street at 12:23 p.m. Saturday for a report of a structure fire in the area. When the first engine company to respond arrived, heavy smoke and fire were seen coming from behind one of the buildings. The fire then spread to 1413 and 1415 Jacob Street, in addition to a structure in the alley.

Due to the fierce fire and proximity to buildings, the blaze was raised to a second alarm, prompting other Wheeling firefighters and off-duty crews from the Glen Dale Fire Department and the Glen Dale Fire Department Cumberland Trail in St.Clairsville to help.

Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control in about two hours. No properties on 14th or 15th Street were damaged, however, the buildings that caught fire are likely destroyed.

Wheeling Fire investigators will spend the next few days working to determine the exact cause of the fire.
