Cosmopolitan on the Canal Burns to the Ground

Advance Indiana has an interesting take on this morning's fire in an under-construction apartment project along the Central Canal.

Gary R. Welsh notes the upper floors were all-wood framing, instead of the concrete-and-steel used on the ground level, creating a tinderbox situation. Other commentators have noted that the fire was "particularly intense".

This Indianapolis Observer hopes the arson squad is out in force on this one!

UPDATE as of 17 March 2009:

Officials blamed arson in Indy canal fire
reports The Indianapolis Star.
