COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Red Cross is helping 22 people after a fire damaged an apartment building in northwest Columbus early Wednesday morning. 

Firefighters with the Columbus Division of Fire said the fire started on Jasmine Lane in a single unit of a four-unit building. That was the only unit that was damaged. 

The power was shut off to that building. Battalion Chief Steve Martin told 10TV it's likely some of the people will be able to return home after the power is restored.

No one was hurt and there's no word on what caused the fire. 

Columbus firefighters battled two other fires overnight. One was at Shad Used Tires on Westerville Road. The other fire was on Colorado Avenue that caused heavy damage to a home. No injuries were reported in either of the fires.
