  Original Published: 10/22/2013For the second time in just over a year the Tridico Silk Screening and Sign Company in downtown Mansfield burns. An investigation is now underway to find the cause of the blaze. Asst. Fire Chief Mark Sieving said Mansfield, Shelby and Springfield Township fire departments were on the scene, at the building located at 56 E. Fifth St. since around 10 p.m. Monday, when the fire was reported. "When we arrived we found heavy fire around the second floor showing through the windows. Once we made entry we were able to contain the fire to the older section of the building and stop it from progressing into the newer section of the building," Sieving said. "We did have some collapse in the older section where the fire was. There were no injuries. We did receive mutual aid from Shelby and Springfield Township fire departments. Washington Township Fire Department assisted us covering the city during the incident. We also called in some off duty personnel to help," Sieving said. The Tridico Silk Screening and Sign Company building was seriously damaged by fire in August 2012. The owner had since made repairs and reopened the business.  "The cause of the fire is under investigation. We will have people on the scene throughout the day. We'll be working with the Tridicos' to keep their business going and help them through this process," Sieving said.
