Cause of the fire was determined as slag from a cutting torch used by the demolition crews that went into combustible material and ignited portions of the west wing.

Firefighters returned after 8 o'clock last night when the fire re-kindled. Moore said the demolition crew was called back to the scene to tear out some walls in the effort to extinguish fire. Firefighters were at the scene about 90 minutes on both occasions. Grundy County Rural Fire Protection district assisted at the scene.
