Jul. 27, 2014 @ 12:19 PM

HUNTINGTON — Fifth Avenue is being re-opened in downtown Huntington, as crews have made progress in fighting and containing the Sunday morning blaze that has destroyed the Morris Building, 845 Fourth Ave., (home to such popular restaurants as Backyard Pizza and Raw Bar and The Peddler).

 Still closed for the time being is Fourth Avenue from 10th Street to 8th Street as crews are still on the scene trying to completely put out the fire, which they have been battling since about 9 a.m.
