Fire hits old stone building

The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — A fire Monday night caused extensive damage to a more than century-old building that formerly housed the State Highway Patrol.

        No injuries were reported from the four-alarm fire. The cause was not immediately known.

        The stone building, east of downtown, was being renovated for the city's health department, said a construction superintendent at the scene.

        He estimated that up to 15 percent of the building, built in 1870, was damaged. Cost of the damage was not estimated.
