The Zanesville Fire Department is investigating a Wednesday morning fire. It happened at an house that had three apartments in it  at 533 Glendale Avenue. Investigators say there was no one home in the apartment where the fire started. A neighbor noticed the flames and smoke and called for help. Everyone was able to escape unharmed and all three apartments suffered major damage in the blaze. No word yet on the cause of the fire, which broke out just after 9:00 this morning.
