MAYSVILLE, Ky. -- Almost two years after a fire killed five in Maysville, city leaders say the historic row homes damaged will be demolished, despite efforts to preserve the buildings. The cause of the fire is still undetermined. Fire officials at the time said it appeared to be accidental. Shortly after the fire, the Kentucky Trust for Historic Preservation came in and tried to preserve the 1830s building. However, one of the row homes collapsed after a heavy summer rain storm. That compromised the entire structure.
