Fire damages Kokomo Tribune buildingJanuary 6, 2021
By The Associated Press
KOKOMO — A fire Tuesday morning caused extensive smoke and water damage to the Kokomo Tribune building, officials said.
The fire was reported shortly before 4 a.m. and firefighters remained on the scene for about six hours, the newspaper reported.
“I would say it is major, because they had to put a lot of water on it,” Kokomo Fire Department Inspector Glenda Myers said of the damage.
Firefighters did not initially see the source of the flames and used an excavator to tear down an eastern wall, Myers said.
Once firefighters were able to enter the area of the building where the flames appeared to be coming from, they were able to quickly extinguish the blaze, she said.
The cause of the fire and its origin inside the building was under investigation.
