Blue Parrot and Model Cleaners buildings destroyed in fire

Top Stories

Two Morgantown businesses were destroyed in a fire early Sunday.

It happened around 3:45 in the morning on the Mileground in Morgantown.

Brookhaven Fire Chief Jimmy Lipscomb says the fire started in the Blue Parrot before spreading to the nearby Model Cleaners building.

Nine separate fire departments were called in to fight the blaze, including a tanker from Mount Morris, Pa.

Both businesses were closed at the time, and no injuries were reported.

Lipscomb says there’s no reason to believe the fire was suspicious at this point, but the state fire marshal has been called in to determine the cause.
