TIPP CITY — A downtown Tipp City business and local landmark has been destroyed in a fire.

Fire crews were called to Browse Awhile Books in the Old Tippecanoe Main Street Historic District twice, the first time around 10 p.m. Monday night.

The fire rekindled, and crews were called out again early Tuesday morning.

Officials believe an electrical issue is to blame for the fire.

The building housing the bookstore was built in 1871.

A connected structure, housing Merchant 31, was also damaged.
