Fire destroys downtown building in LaGrangeSeptember 13, 2017
By The Associated Press
LAGRANGE — A downtown business building collapsed in a northern Indiana town as a fire burned for several hours, causing firefighters to drain much of the community’s water supply.
The fire broke out Tuesday morning in downtown LaGrange and fire crews from several surrounding communities joined in trying to get it extinguished.
The roof and front facade collapsed from a building housing a Family Dollar store. The fire also spread to a sporting goods retailer in the row of older buildings across the street from the LaGrange County Courthouse in the town about 40 miles east of South Bend.
No injuries were immediately reported.
Local officials issued a boil water advisory for residents as the town faced low water levels while crews battled the fire.
