An fire broke out before dawn in one of the buildings on the old Wellington Row block of State Street below Eagle Street. The building is vacant and, like the rest of the row, awaiting redevelopment.
CBS6 has a brief piece on the fire here. Additional details will be posted if they become available.
The building on fire is the one at the left of the Wellington in this photo taken in early 2009:
