ALMA, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a large fire burned two historic buildings and damaged a third in the mid-Michigan community of Alma.

No injuries were reported and firefighters from several departments responded to the blaze in the Alma Downtown Historic District on Wednesday morning.

Alma Fire Chief Harold House tells the Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant that the fire appears to have started in the second floor of one building and spread to another building.

Temperatures were in the teens. Many area streets were closed and thick ice formed on buildings, trees, street lights and firefighters’ gear.

MLive.com reports several businesses affected by the fire were closed at the time. There’s no immediate word of a possible cause of the blaze.
