A century-old building in downtown Rockford that was once a thriving furniture company will be demolished after a fire on Sunday. The fire required over a dozen units from Rockford Fire Department and took over an hour to contain. According to WIFR, fire spread to BMO Harris Bank Center roof but was quickly extinguished.
Here are some of the photos used to assess the fire and damage at the old Hanley Furniture Co. building, posted by Rockford Fire Department on Instagram.
