Fire causes closure of section of Business Loop 70 | Mid-Missouri News

The Columbia Fire Department was called to a commercial structure fire in the 800 block of North Boulevard around 3:45 a.m. on Friday. Heavy fire and smoke were visible at the scene. Assistant Fire Chief Jerry Jenkins stated that upon arrival, the fire was escalated to a second alarm due to the potential danger posed to nearby buildings. It took approximately an hour for the fire to be brought under control.

During the firefighting efforts, part of Business Loop 70 East near Range Line Street had to be closed off. Unfortunately, Jenkins confirmed that the building in question is considered a total loss. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the fire.
