Was this building destroyed in a fire? Or, were my eyes just decieving me?

Are you sure that was Comic World? It was Mitchell Copp Jewellers as well and is usually known as the Mitchell Copp Building. There was a fire, I don't remember when, and it's basically just the facade left at this point. The owner is holding out for $$$ . . .
