TELL CITY, Ind. (WEHT) – A fire at one of Tell City’s largest buildings was ruled accidental.
Indiana State Fire Marshals said the fire at the old Swiss Plywood Building started from sparks from a tool used inside the building by a worker, which then spread quickly.
The worker got out of the building and dialed 911.
Tell City firefighters said half the damage was destroyed but a firewall kept it from spreading to the other half.
Some businesses inside had water and smoke damage.
