At Chillicothe, a garage and a car were destroyed by separate weekend fires. The Department of Emergency Services was called out late Friday night to 122 JFK in Chillicothe due to the report of a structure fire.

Fire Chief Darrell Wright reported the blaze is believed to have started in the engine compartment of a car. Fuel was leaking from the gas tank, helping to add to the strength of the blaze. The garage and motor vehicle were a total loss. Chief Wright noted the heat of the fire melted siding on the southwest side of the home, causing extensive damage to the exterior. The property owner at 122 JFK was listed as Paula Murphy of Chillicothe.

Earlier on Friday, the Chillicothe Fire Department was called out twice. A metal building along U.S. Highway 36 sustained damage to its south side, siding, framing, and to some contents inside. The owner of the structure at 15666 Highway 36 was listed as Jerry Parrish. Fire Chief Darrell Wright reported the blaze appears to have been electrical in nature, starting from a light switch mounted to a frame pole. The report indicated there was smoke damage throughout the metal building.

Firefighters were called to the 900 block of Harvestor Road in Chillicothe, where a trailer with waste debris including pallets and boards, was engulfed in flames. The dual-axle open metal trailer had been parked in a driveway while the owner was cleaning out a building. The cause of this fire is undetermined. The owner is Jon Cole, of 1325 Keith in Chillicothe.
