Contractor hired to root out, put out Harriman fire source


HARRIMAN - A contractor will start removing debris to reach and finally douse the fire that's been burning five days and destroyed a historic downtown Harriman commercial building.

City officials agreed to spend up to $240,000 if necessary and will hire Ace Inc. to address the lingering fire that broke out Thursday afternoon in the old Miller & Brewer Building, once one of Harriman's largest buildings. It served for many decades as a department store and then later was used for apartments.
