One year later, no cause in historic fire

MAQUOKETA (KWWL)-- It's now been a year since a fire swept through Maquoketa, destroying a historic strip of buildings downtown.

This was the scene on Main Street last January 18th.

Half a dozen businesses burned for hours as firefighters worked in sub-zero temperatures.

It was so cold, some fire-hoses were caked in a foot of ice.

Downtown hasn't changed much in the last year.

Investigators still don't know what caused the fire.
