For the second time in recent weeks, the former Youngstown library on the city’s East Side caught fire.

Crews were called early Thursday to the building at the corner of North Jackson Street and Himrod Avenue.

Youngstown Fire Chief John O’Neill said firefighters smelled lighter fluid inside the building.

The structure caught fire once before on July 22.
