Code Enforcement Shuts Business Down

The City Code Enforcement Office shut down an East Main Street business after a faulty wood stove caught on fire this morning.

City Fire Department Captain Matt Rettger tells WESB In and Out Tire was burning “trash and debris” in the wood stove. He added that some of it was construction debris including particle board, paneling and furniture.

He says the business will be closed until code enforcement deems it safe to reopen.

The fire was reported at 11:20 a.m. Rettger says firefighters were on the scene for about an hour “making sure the building wasn’t on fire.”
