Seagrave didn’t return a request for comment by press time.

 

Two days prior to the fire, the owner found the window of the front door broken, Desmond said. He searched the building and did not find anything suspicious. The day before the fire, the owner reported the damage to the police and provided pictures of the damage. The incident was documented, she added.

 

The body has been identified and next of kin has been notified. Once the investigation is complete, city police expect to release more information.

 

The historic building once housed a machine shop in the back. “People would send their wheel drums there to be replaced,” the chief said.

 

There were many flammable materials inside the building, such as paint supplies and machine shop materials.

 

The cause and the origin will be determined after reports expected to be filed by the state’s fire marshal office are concluded, Howley said.
