IOWA CITY — A portion of East Burlington Street in Iowa City is expected to remain closed into Sunday as crews continue cleanup after a structure fire.
Downtown traffic is being detoured onto Dubuque, Court and Clinton streets while the block is closed, officials said.
A Tuesday afternoon fire heavily damaged the upper floors of the Hieronymus Square building under construction in the 100 block of East Burlington Street.
The Iowa City Fire Department said the blaze was caused by a space heater being used to warm a third-floor room that held subfloor adhesives, which are combustible.
Officials said the damaged floors are being torn down and the site being cleared.
