A building ravaged by fire in downtown Clinton will be torn down.
Fire crews responded to a blaze near the corner of Highways 8 and 4 early Saturday, which has shut down northbound access on Albert Street.
Central Huron Mayor Jim Ginn confirms the building will be demolished in the coming days.
Saturday's blaze also forced the closure of the municipality's town hall, located next door.
The latest meeting of Central Huron council was also cancelled.
Ginn expects town hall will be re-opened for work by Monday, March 27th, while Albert Street (Hwy 4) could be re-opened as early as Thursday, March 23.
He adds, the road opening date is fluid, but will happen while demolition takes place from the rear of the damaged property.
Nobody was injured in the blaze, but a 47 year old Central Huron man has been charged with arson in relation to the fire.
