An investigation into Tuesday’s mattress warehouse fire continued today (Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2006) in tandem with demolition of the ruined building.
The wall on Central Avenue gaped open to reveal heavy equipment inside for the cleanup. Firefighters held an overnight fire watch and are monitoring the cleanup for pockets of fire, Chief Cecil Allen said. At 4 p.m., two such eruptions could be seen deep inside the site.
The mountains of debris and ongoing fire hazard spell many more hours of effort before the cleanup will be completed.
