The fire broke out at the one story building around 11:15pm Wednesday night. The building is vacant. It is attached to a five story building which is also vacant. But a Google search shows the five story building has some history.
It apparently dates all the way back to 1889 and used to be the St. Mary`s Infirmary.
That search also shows it was halfway house and a detox center.
There are a series of buildings here in the area.
But the main fire damage appears to have been contained to the one story building--- not the historic five story structure.
Investigators say the blaze went to three alarms because of concern that the flames could have spread to those other buildings.
Fortunately, that didn`t happen. There were no injuries reported and a cause is still under investigation.
