Boil advisory in effect after large downtown LaGrange fire.
Despite the destruction, the small town of LaGrange is coming together so they can begin rebuilding.
"People do live in these buildings, they really do and it’s not all about fun let’s see this building come down.
Lives are really impacted because a lot of people have a lot of hard work into these homes,” said April Johnloz.
As time went on, the crowd became busy.
People came in droves from local businesses or homes offering help.
"The local citizens in LaGrange County, the ones that are here, they have been more than gracious on giving us enough room, as well as, helping us do anything we ask.
It might take a while to rebuild all the stuff and get all the debris but we’ll bounce back eventually,” said Katelyn McBride.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Fire officials say it took so long to put out because the building is so old.
