COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Columbus Fire Department says 89 fires were reported near Ohio State's campus in the hours after the Buckeyes won the first national title game in college football's playoffs.
Battalion Chief Tracy Smith says the Tuesday morning fires involved trash bins, Dumpsters and couches, and no injuries were reported.
Smith says the reports started coming in just before 1 a.m. with the last reported about 4:45 a.m.
Police made a handful of arrests early Tuesday after using tear gas and pepper spray to disperse some Ohio State students and football fans who spilled by the thousands into streets to celebrate the team's 42-20 win over Oregon.
