Firefighters halt operations at Cedar Rapids Sinclair property

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Firefighters have officially ended operations at the Sinclair property, which caught fire December 15th.

The 16 day battle ended Wednesday.  The fire spread through eight interconnected buildings, many of which were three stories high.

The fire was first reported at 6:36 a.m. on December 15th.  Officials have called it suspicious, because there were no working utilities on the site.

This was the second suspicious fire at the abandoned site in 2009.
