Investigators determine Zionsville Main Street fire accidental


The Zionsville Fire Dept. has determined that a Sept. 18 fire that damaged three businesses and apartments on Main Street was accidental.

The investigation concluded that the fire started in the basement of Noah Grants restaurant when an exothermic reaction resulted in spontaneous ignition of rags in a trash container. The fire spread to cause as much as $750,000 in damage at Noah Grants, Silk Purse Antiques, Julie Bova Designs and the apartment area upstairs.

The one resident at home at the time of the fire escaped safely before firefighters arrived. One firefighter was injured on the scene, transported to a hospital and released later in the day.
