BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The City of Battle Creek has reopened Michigan Avenue, apparently satisfied that the century-old building that housed the On Deck Sports Bar and Grill won’t collapse on anyone.
The four story building is in rough shape after a fire early Monday caved in the roof, but an inspection satisfied the city it won’t collapse.
The fire investigation still lies ahead. They say it appears the fire started in the back of the building in an upper floor.
They also gave the owners of a restaurant next door permission to reopen.
