Three alarm re on Springville Main Street

Serve Daily - - COMMUNITY - By Ed Helmick for Serve Daily

SPRINGVILLE — On Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 19 a fire broke out in a sec­ond story apart­ment in the Brown build­ing that houses Brown House Fine Arts store and Bill Brown Re­al­ity lo­cated in the mid­dle of the 200 block of Main in Springville.

Be­cause of fire risk to sur­round­ing build­ings, this be­came a three-alarm fire bring­ing fire units to sup­port the Springville Fire Depart­ment from Span­ish Fork, Maple­ton, Salem, Payson and Provo.

The ad­ja­cent busi­nesses were evac­u­ated and it took a lit­tle over an hour to bring the fire un­der con­trol. No one was in­jured and the fire was con­tained in the Brown build­ing, although smoke and heat dam­age may be found in the ad­ja­cent busi­nesses. The cause of the fire is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Ev­ery­one is very thank­ful for the re­sponse and abil­ity of the fire depart­ment per­son­nel. We are thank­ful the fire was con­trolled quickly with­out greater loss. The per­sonal loss of be­long­ings in the apart­ment is al­ways sad. The loss to the fine art store and to the real-es­tate of­fice is un­for­tu­nate and we all have to feel for that loss also.

Just the day be­fore the fire my wife and I ad­mired a framed paint­ing in the win­dow of the Brown House Fine Art store.
