Cleveland firefighters battle blaze on city's east side

Cleveland Firefighters battled a large building fire on Cleveland's east side.

The blaze started around 1:30PM Monday at East 82nd Street just north of St. Clair Avenue. At least two dozen people were evacuated.

About a half-hour after the fire began, flames spread to a rear building, and firefighters called out for more engines.

As firefighters were battling the blaze, the building partially collapsed.

Luckily nobody was hurt.

Most of the business housed inside the building plan to rebuild.
