FIRE BREAKS OUT ON HIERONYMOUS SQUARE CONSTRUCTION SITE IN DOWNTOWN IOWA CITY

Fire crews responded to a fire at a construction site on the corner of Clinton and Burlington Streets in Iowa City yesterday just before 2:45 p.m. Flames were seen shooting from the building. Battalion Chief Brian Rohr with the Iowa City Fire Department said it took them less than 30 minutes to get the fire out, but crews remained on scene for hours looking for hot-spots and other potential hazards.

The fire was at the Hodge-Hieronymus Square development, which is being constructed on a piece of land that sat vacant for decades. The planned building would feature two 7-story towers with hotel, office, retail, and apartment space.
