HOLLAND, Ohio (AP) -- Firefighters have found the body of one victim in an Ohio apartment building that burned to the ground overnight.

A fire chief just outside Toledo says another person remains unaccounted for at the complex where there have been four major fires over the last 12 years.

Springfield Township Fire Chief Barry Cousino says several other people who had been missing now have turned up since the fire broke out late Sunday night.

The apartment complex that sits along the Ohio Turnpike is made up of mostly wood-frame buildings.

The fire chief says they were built in the early 1970s and don't have firewalls or many safety features that are now required at new multi-unit buildings.

He says the latest fire spread so quickly that it looks suspicious.
