Fate Of Destroyed Plattsmouth Building Still Uncertain

PLATTSMOUTH (KPTM) - The cause of a fire that erupted on Plattsmouth's Main Street destroying a century old building in January remains unknown.

FOX 42 News learned Wednesday investigators still aren't allowed inside the structure because it's too unsafe.  We also learned from the city administrator that the fate of the building is still up in the air.

"I think they should tear it down," said Kit Kylan of Plattsmouth.  "I think they should make room for other things and add more space so different events can happen there."

Traffic, reduced to just one lane, has been allowed through for about a month.  For Kimberly Lambrecht, it's a sign of progress.

"I think it represents baby steps and I think it's good for our community."

Lambrecht is a clinical manager next to the destroyed building.  Her original office was destroyed by the fire, so her team is now operating out of a temporary space.

"I think we're getting to the point where we can move on," said Lambrecht, who hopes to move to a different location soon.

For Plattsmouth, a lot of questions must still be answered, but one thing is for certain: the future starts now.
