Town Square Village Fire Update

The once five story fire at Town Square Village is contained.

Captain Dana Havlik told us earlier today, crews will be on scene most likely throughout the evening to control what's left of the fire.

"Not a fun day yesterday evening," says Noah Williams with The Williams Group.

Capt. Dana Havlik says, "The building was considered a total loss."

He says the west unit of Town Square Village is where yesterday's fire started, and where it ended.

He tells us, "We were able to prevent it from spreading to the other buildings in the complex."

He says crews remained on scene all night monitoring and making sure the fire didn't spread to grass in the area either.

Williams tells us they had builders out yesterday and they were out today.

He says the fire will of course delay a finish date, but they won't miss a beat with construction and will work to have it complete as soon as possible.

Williams tells us, "We just had to adjust schedules and start in a different location verses  this building here.  Then we'll get through the insurance process, get it torn down and start back over."

He says they have builders risk insurance, which is meant for natural disasters like this.

Both Harlik and Williams say community support and hard work is what allowed them to get the fire controlled so sooner than later.

Capt. Havlik says, "They did an outstanding job and I couldn't praise them any higher for the job that they've done."

"Let's turn this whole thing into a positive. Nobody was hurt. It's a strong community and we'll get through it," says Williams

Fire investigators and the fire marshal's office were out today taking photos and getting information.

They don't have a cause.

As far as the cost of the damaged building, Williams says they won't have an estimate until the end of the week.
