OBERLIN, Ohio (AP) - Investigators in northern Ohio planned to return to the scene of a fire that all but destroyed the center of a warehouse and caused its roof to collapse.

The blaze struck a warehouse behind Carter Lumber on Route 20 in Oberlin on Wednesday. No injuries were reported.

Cleveland.com reports only several walls and the burnt out husk of a truck remained. The contents of the warehouse appeared to be completely destroyed.

Wellington Fire officials were investigating the wreckage early Thursday, trying to determine what started the fire. Investigators are expected back Friday.

Assistant Fire Chief Troy Pitts says it will probably take some time to determine how the blaze started. Representatives with the lumberyard were not available for comment.

Oberlin is about 30 miles southwest of Cleveland.
