Fire destroys antiques building in Marshalltown

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — Fire has destroyed a building in Marshalltown that was being used to store antiques.

Firefighters responded to the blaze late Monday night and remained at the scene until about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, putting out hot spots.

Marshalltown Fire Chief Steve Edwards says a local antiques dealer, Rowley Antiques, was using the second-floor of the building as storage. The first floor was used as a commercial warehouse.

The building used to house a pizza and pasta restaurant.

No one was in the building when the fire started and no injuries have been reported.

The investigation into the cause of the fire is continuing.
