The searches of the building were negative, and no victims were found. The fires were extinguished and firefighters remained on scene for overhaul. 511 Centre has been the scene of other fires as well. Past fires have also been reported in the 500 block Neighbors were outside their homes and in an uproar stating the city refuses to do anything about the burned out abandoned homes there that keep attracting vagrants. Units 511 thru 519 have burned more than once, some 3 times. The address of 511 is attached to 509 which is still occupied.
