Sunday Morning Fire Destroys Vacant Historic Home


A fire early Sunday morning destroyed a historic structure on the north side of Knox. “Mackey’s Boarding House” was located at the northeast corner of Mound and Prettyman Streets. The once-stately Victorian structure had been vacant for several years. Firefighters were called out at 3:30 a.m. and remained on the scene for several hours. Knox-Center Township Fire Chief Kenny Pfost tells WKVI news the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
