Fire Destroys Veteran's Building

A fire destroys a veteran's organization building in Longview. It happened around 11:00 a.m. at the American Legion Post 131 on Highway 80.  Fire crews arrived to find the inside of the building completely engulfed. Crews doused the blaze quickly, but not before it destroyed the inside of the structure. Members of the post say it was a devastating loss, but this will not affect the work they do in the community.   Investigators believe the blaze may have started as a trash fire. No one was injured. Post commanders say it will take up to three months to rebuild at the same location.
