Paducah's downtown Kresge building may be set for demolition after the collapse of a large part of its roof. Paducah Fire Department Officials condemned the building this week fearing further damage might spill out onto the street. Officials said the building’s condition has been deteriorating for years and last weekend’s heavy rain only accelerated the damage.
