More downtown Murray buildings are likely to be demolished after this week’s massive downtown fire. City officials briefed community members this morning about the fire’s impact on the community.

Some businesses remain closed awaiting electrical and structural inspections before the city can re-energize offices with electricity and turn on natural gas supply lines. The fire’s cause is still unknown, and no one was injured.

Murray’s Fire Department starts a new program today making it easier to locate people in storm shelters after natural disasters.

Murray Fire Marshal Dickie Walls says emergency responders search all damaged structures after natural disasters, but storm shelters’ locations aren’t always obvious.
