Fire Breaks Out at Downtown Covington Building

A fire broke out at a downtown Covington building late Wednesday afternoon.

The response from the fire and police departments forced the closure of Pike Street and 9th Street at Holman Avenue.

The building has entrances on both Pike and 9th. The fire appeared to be contained to an upper floor and roof on the 9th Street side.

Grainwell, a maker of wooden decorative items that also has a retail shop on Pike Street, operates its warehouse at the building.

Further details were not immediately available.
