Fire destroys downtown building in 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, 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. No injuries were reported.  (AP)
