Close to a hundred people were on scene soon after a fire broke out in an upstairs apartment in downtown Clinton. Luckily no one was injured but one young couple has been left with nothing after the fire. The upstairs apartments weren't the only casualties. A liquor store and bridal shop below were also damaged. The owners of both those stores are keeping an optimistic viewpoint on the situation. No customers’ dresses were damaged and the liquor store should be open in a day or two.
The most common murmur among the masses watching the fire was that everyone in Clinton knows everyone else. More importantly everyone is willing to help their neighbors.
Eight fire departments and the American Red Cross were on scene. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
