Downtown Tipp City suffered a devastating fire in the morning hours of June 21st in our historic Browse Awhile Books Building and part of the Merchant 31 Building. The fire displaced residents, ruined merchandise, and is still smoldering throughout the morning hours, destroying the old historic building which is nationally renowned for its reports of haunted activity that attracted many. We are so saddened by what is happened and we want to be proactive by creating a relief effort to help all those effected by this fire. The money raised for this will go to help the tenants who have lost everything, and the building and business owners fund the clean up and restoration beyond what insurance can cover. We have a strong, tight-knit community that I know will rally behind our downtown owners and residents in their time of need.
