IOWA CITY — After about a week of being closed following Tuesday’s Hieronymus Square construction fire, the 100 block of East Burlington Street is set to reopen to vehicles at 8 p.m. Monday.
Crews worked through the week and into the weekend to ensure the street below the structure was safe, according a news release from the city.
A blaze tore through the top two floors of the Hieronymus Square project, a two-tower, seven-story complex with 43 high-end condos in one tower and a Marriott Extended Stay hotel in the other, originally slated to open in August.
The fire started when several cases of subfloor adhesives, which were combustible, came in contact with liquid propane-fueled radiant heater.
The blaze likely caused $1 million in damage and set the project back 60 days.
