WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A report given to fire officials states the owners of the building that caught fire Monday say their furnace was not working and they were using space heaters in its place.


It first happened in the 700 block of Logan Ave. at Tri-City Clothing around 9 p.m. Monday.

Firefighters spent over five hours battling the flames. 

The fire caused the north wall of the building to collapse into the street. 

The fire then rekindled around 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

No one was hurt.  

Correction: A previous version of this web story incorrectly stated that the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office didn't know the cause of the fire. The BHCSO is not involved in this case, according to Sheriff Tony Thompson.
