Fire reported at former Clarksville department store site

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) – A fire Thursday at the former Value City department store building in Clarksville was caused by smoldering debris, according to firefighters and a construction supervisor on the scene.

Smoke could be seen coming from the interior of the building which is being converted into a project-based learning high school for Clarksville Community Schools.

Firefighters and the construction supervisor said crews had stacked the debris in a pile and it smoldered enough to catch fire while they were at lunch.

Damage to the building was minimal.
