IRON MOUNTAIN LAKE, MO (KFVS) -

The city hall in Iron Mountain Lake, Missouri was significantly damaged in a fire on Thursday, February 18.

According to Iron Mountain Lake City Clerk Julie Pearson, the fire started in the back of the building in the records room.

Pearson said they lost a lot, including historical items and some files. However, they have salvaged a lot of files in the building.

The state fire marshal is investigating the fire.

On Monday, Pearson was putting the new office together.

She said that data, customer accounts and records were backed up in their computer system. They are transferring the data to the new computer system they plan on getting on Tuesday.
