Building likely ruined

July 9, 2012

    Only a portion of a downtown Monroeville building remained standing this morning after a devastating fire broke out Thursday night.

Firefighters reportedly had the other half of the building knocked down in order to prevent rekindling.    The structure is owned by Roger Gerardot,  at 107 Summer St., across from the American Legion post.
    No monetary estimate of damage was available.

Relief by Sunday?

July 6, 2012

    Weather experts are saying Decatur-area residents could be getting some relief from the oppressive heat by Sunday — if highs in the upper 80s are relief. The way it's been going of late, that could be a dip of 10 to 15 degrees!
    The temperature topped out at 99 degrees at the city weather station on Thursday, the ninth consecutive day when the high hit 89 or more. And the National Weather Service is saying highs could be in the triple digits today and Saturday.
