Stewart Ave. in Ithaca Reopens Following Chapter House Fire

Local News

Ithaca Police have reopened Stewart Avenue to traffic following a fire Tuesday that claimed a city landmark.

While Stewart Avenue has reopened, people are still asked to stay away from the fire damaged Chapter House Pub. A neighboring apartment building that was also heavily damaged in the fire has already been torn down.

Over 30 Cornell University students were displaced as a result of the fire. Many of the students have been relocated for the rest of the semester.

The owners of the pub are unsure if they can save the building or if they will rebuild.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. An initial review suggests the fire started between the two buildings.
