Cause of the fire was unknown at press time on Friday, January 30, the fire called in just around 8:20 p.m. January 28. 30 fire companies from two states - Pennsylvania and Ohio - were called in to fight the intense fire with flames seen from miles away, firefighters able to save a garage in back of the business block and the former Garvin Industries building, sitting just across the alley next to Uncle Meatballs.

Firefighters were at the scene until 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 29, but were called back twice when flames rekindled.
