The Bath Township Fire Department once again responding to a fire at a vacant motel.

Crews were called out to the former Lima Inn Motel on Neubrecht Rd around 9:30 this morning. Upon arrival heavy smoke from all four sides of the building was visible. Bath Township was assisted by the Lima Fire Department and it took 2 hours to get the fire fully extinguished. Authorities say the fire looks suspicious and this isn't the first time they have responded to this location for a fire.

"This building has been a target of arson in the past. We're asking for the community to share with us any information they have," said Chief Joe Kitchen of Bath Township Fire Department. "They can either call the fire department or they can call crime stoppers and stay anonymous."

The fire was called in by a passing truck driver through 911. The fire remains under investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to call 419-221-0550 or Crime Stoppers at 419-229-7867.
