Federal Hill Fire

Yesterday afternoon there was a small fire on at the corner of Spruce and Messenger Streets. This building is next to the Tuscan Social Club and I’m not sure, but may be owned by the Social Club.

Could the building be saved? I’m no expert, but it barely was worth saving before the fire. If I were a betting man, I’d bet on a parking lot by the end of the week.
