Seward Business Fire

 An early-morning fire destroyed a major business on Seward's western outskirts Sunday.

Midwest Automotive was reduced to a smoldering ruin as about 50 firefighters from Seward and four neighboring communities poured water on hot spots.

There was apparently no one in the building at about 2 a.m., when the initial fire call came in, and Seward Fire Chief Dean Fritz said there were no deaths and no serious injuries resulting from the blaze.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
