No injuries are reported of a fire that damaged five buildings in the OSU campus area early Saturday. 

Columbus fire officials say the blaze started in a 3-story vacant church at E. 8th and Indianola Avenues and spread to four other structures. The church was destroyed and the flames also damaged cars and streetlamps in the area. Firefighters say the cause of the blaze is 'suspicious' but has yet to be determined.
