(Cincinnati) A fire broke out in downtown Cincinnati Tuesday morning just after 7 a.m. The movie Carol was reportedly being shot in the building at 24 W. Court Street just a few days before the fire. The building houses Fox clothing store on the street level. The other levels of the building are vacant and the building is for sale. Cincinnati Fire Chief Richard Braun said the fire started on the third floor and  is suspicious. Officers are looking for a male person-of-interest who goes by the name Tone, 5'10, 200 lbs., driving a white sedan, and lives in Camp Washington. Witnesses report hearing an explosion. Two squatters were rescued and are uninjured. West Court will be closed between Elm and Vine Streets until fire crews finish their investigation and clean up.
