Cleanup to start at hotel fire site

QUINCY (AP) – Cleanup is scheduled to start at the site of a fire that destroyed an historic downtown Quincy hotel.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reported that cleanup was expected to begin Monday at the site of the former Newcomb Hotel. That’s more than 5 months after a five-alarm blaze destroyed the building on Sept. 6. The hotel opened in 1888 but had been empty for years.

Sugar Grove contractor BSB Development Inc. was to start removing debris. The project is expected to take 6 to 8 weeks.

The contractor is to be paid about $440,000.
