Fire Destroys 116-Year-Old Iowa Building

RED OAK (AP) -- A fire in the southwest Iowa city of Red Oak has destroyed a 116-year-old building in the city's downtown.

The Omaha World-Herald reports the building previously housed a bar but wasn't currently being used.

The fire was reported at 12:25 a.m. Monday in the two-story building, and it took firefighters more than four hours to control the blaze.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.

Montgomery County records show the building was constructed in 1897.

The remainder of the building was demolished Monday because of fears its walls would collapse.
