East Magnolia between Railroad and North State Street was closed so crews could battle the flames.

Clark's Feed and Seed shares a wall with Hohl's Feed and Seed. Hohl's burned down in February.

Police say a transient named Jonathan Wolfe admitted to setting the February fire at that business to stay warm.

Wolfe pleaded guilty to reckless burning and got credit for time served. He was released from jail in March.

The video of the fire below was taken from viewer Hashna Fennec.
