It is burning as I type. Reports state the fire started on the top floor and if this is correct it will not get as hot and hopefully it can be contained. It is interesting to note that the announcement was just made that it had been boarded up to keep people out. So sad

Could be, but I doubt any insurance company would have written a policy on that abandoned derelict building.

Seems suspicious that a week ago the whole place gets boarded up with new real estate signs everywhere ... Then yesterday it catches fire. Smells like an insurance fire to me.

Regardless of why, it is sad to see part of history get destroyed.
