MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — A commercial building located at 201 South Main Street on the corner of Gambier Street caught fire this morning between 6:30 and 6:45 a.m.  This building is the location of Bodi N Balance Fitness and it was previously the location of Focus Studio and Ben Franklin.  The fire is believed to have started in the basement of the building and spread through the building and eventually flames penetrated the roof.  The fire department has been doing everything they can to contain the fire and minimize the damage to the newly renovated Mount Vernon Nazarene University Art Center which is located next door.
