To Media Outlets:

On November 23, 2016 at 2:09AM, the Clintonville Fire Department along with Clintonville Area Ambulance and Clintonville Police were dispatched to 46 South Main Street in the City of Clintonville for a report of a structure fire at that location.

The Clintonville Fire Department was assisted by Fire Departments from Marion, Manawa, Bear Creek, Pella and Embarrass.  The nature of the building configuration, structural age and adjacent buildings along with extensive fire in the upper level of the building made the fire difficult to combat with crews remaining on scene until 4:00PM.

The State Fire Marshall’s Office and Building Inspector was summoned to assist in the investigation.  It was determined that the  Fire was accidental in nature and the origin of the fire was in the floor structure between the China King Restaurant and the apartments located above the business that housed a family of 5 all of whom were able to escape without injury.  Red Cross is currently assisting the displaced family.  

Due to structural safety concerns of the building impacted by the fire, the adjoining business Schultz’s Blue Bird Café shall remain closed until further notice.
