Newton Fire Investigation
Posted: May 7, 2004 
Investigators sift through the rubble looking for what caused a fire that 
destroyed a Jasper County business and damaged two others. Firefighters from 
five departments responded to the fire at the Print Shop Two in downtown Newton 
yesterday.  Today was a day of clean up as the search for a cause gets 
underway. Smoke fills the square in downtown Newton as firefighters battle the 
blaze at the Print Shop Two. That was the scene yesterday. Today investigators 
arrived to try to determine what caused the fire which totaled the building. 
The building owner Will Klier was on a business trip when he got the call that 
his building was on fire. He says he was in shock and he couldn't do much 
because he was eight hours away from Newton. Klier says the damage inside the 
building is unfixable. He says the floor inside the building has fell into the 
Wade Fire Protection Chief Larry Dorn says firefighters from all over the area 
were called in to help out and it could have been worse without them. Dorn says 
right now they don't know how the fire started. The owner of the business says 
all that remains of what use to be his business are charred ashes. He says he 
doesn't know what he'll do now.  No one was hurt in the fire.  Both buildings 
attached to the building that burned received smoke and water damage.
It could take some time before a cause is known.
