The blaze broke out just after two o'clock yesterday afternoon in the 3- hundred block of Salem Avenue, next door to the Transportation Museum. Authorities say the fire started in the basement and quickly spread to the roof shooting flames 30- feet into the air.
It took firefighters nearly three hours to get the blaze under control. The fire was contained to the one building that was used to store electrical supplies. Fire investigators plan to come in first thing this morning to decide if the building needs to be torn down. Authorities fear that surrounding walls could collapse- Salem Avenue between Second and Sixth Streets will remain closed this morning.

The case of a Drug Enforcement Agent charged with murder is expected to go to the jury today. Timothy Workman says he wishes he hadn't killed a man outside O'Charley's Restaurant in February.

Yesterday, Workman told the jury that the man who was with Keith Bailey that night had threatened to kill him. James Bumbry had been in Bailey's car as they were all getting ready to leave the restaurant parking lot. Bumbry said something to Workman and a woman he was with, prompting Workman to give him "the finger." Workman says Bumbry jumped out of the car and said, "you don't know who I am." Yesterday evening, two women corroborated Workman's story that Bailey was choking him. The Harmon sisters also said they THOUGHT one of the other guys MIGHT have had a gun.

Lee Newman was charged with a felony and a misdemeanor for the death of one dog and the starvation of another he failed to feed or water for at least two weeks in July. Newman says he wasn't allowed to take the dogs with him when he moved. But, he says, he left them food and water and planned on returning when he could. Despite Newman's argument, Judge William Alexander sentenced the nineteen year old to sixty days in jail and 2 years probation.
