Fire Damages Downtown Wagoner Building
WAGONER, Oklahoma - Firefighters fought freezing temperatures early Wednesday as they worked to put out a fire in a downtown Wagoner business.
The location is a one-story brick building at the intersection of Main and Church. The mayor says the building is a storage area for Second Chance Plus which is located next door.
We're told a patrolman noticed the fire just after 3:00 Wednesday morning.
The fire marshal said the cause of the fire is still under investigation but said arson is in question since the building doesn't have electricity.
"It was very cool and it's a hallow feeling with those burnt out buildings, but we will pick up the pieces and move on," Mayor Albert Jones said.
Wagoner, Coweta as well as several other area fire departments were called out to fight the fire.
Several downtown streets were also closed due to fire trucks and hoses across the streets.
No injuries have been reported.
Meanwhile, Wagoner Police say they are investigating a possible break in at a business across the street from Wednesday's fire. Officers tell News On 6, a back door to the business appeared to be kicked in. They don't know if the possible burglary is related to the fire.
Wednesday's blaze follows a fire in late July which destroyed several downtown buildings just down the street.
The cause of that fire is still under investigation.
