WAREHOUSE FIRE: City Wants The DNR To Help Pay The Tab

The city of Des Moines wants the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to help pay for the cleanup costs from a large warehouse fire earlier this year.

The Des Moines Register reported that the city wants $300,000 of the estimated $550,000 in damage to be paid for from the DNR.   The city will come up with the remaining $250,000 when the property is sold.

Three people were charged with arson after the August fire at a warehouse on Scott Avenue.

City Manager Rick Clark said the site is fenced off because it poses a safety hazard.  The city is trying to acquire the property, conduct environmental testing and ultimately tear it down.
