FIRE NEARLY LEVELS JAMESTOWN SITE

JAMESTOWN -- A storage building on the city's west side was nearly destroyed Sunday afternoon when flames tore through the structure shortly after 2 p.m.

The building on Fairmount Avenue between Sixth and Eighth streets was heavily damaged several months ago. Sunday's blaze left little more than the shell of the structure standing.

Assistant Fire Chief James Shanahan said the flames started outside the building on the northwest corner, then spread up the outside wall into the attic.

City firefighters spent about two hours on the scene dousing flames and cleaning up. The building was owned by Gene Moore.

No one was inside at the time, and there were no injuries.
