Christian Moerlein fire photos by David J. Jones

Firefighters have been battling hot spots at the former Christian Moerlein bottling plant, 1910-1916 Elm Street, since a four-alarm fire that started Friday evening.

No amount on damage has been reported, but the fire was contained to the roof and fourth floor of the 250,000-square-foot Brewery District anchor.

Cincinnati Fire Department (CFD) Captain Michael Washington said that he doesn't believe that the building will need to be torn down.

The following fire photos were taken on Friday evening by photographer David J. Jones, who often photographs fire scenes for CFD.
