UC Fire Department Assists at Major Cambridge Springs Blaze

By Chris Lash Publisher

South Main Street in downtown Cambridge Springs, won’t look the same for a while, as a major fire destroyed a two story building, that was to be the home of a new micro-brewery. Fire officials have been on the scene for two days to investigate the fires cause and origin.

Fifteen fire departments fought the blaze beginning Sunday evening until dawn Monday morning. It was their efforts that kept the blaze from moving to other connected buildings, and businesses. The Union City Fire Department assisted with a water tanker in Cambridge Springs, and also was on standby in Mill Village to assist any other department in their towns, while they fought the downtown Cambridge Springs fire.

The couple working to transform the storefront at 276 S. Main St. into Hardwaters Brewing were still assessing the damage to their space on Monday. The brewery was due to open in six weeks.

The occupants of the second-floor apartments at 276 S. Main St. escaped the fire without injury and no firefighters were injured in fighting the blaze, but at least one dog died in the fire.
