Portland Community Center Burns Down
PORTLAND - A Callaway County landmark burned to the ground tonight. Fire destroyed the Portland Community Center. The building used to serve as the school house in town and has been the community center for more than 30 years.
Witnesses say no one was inside the building when it caught fire and there were no injuries. Witnesses say the fire was under control fairly quickly but that did not save the building. Citizens in the town are already talking about fundraising to rebuild the center.
