(KMOV)-- A large fire destroyed two businesses and damaged three others in downtown Elsberry.

This happened Thursday in the 300 block of Broadway.

The Senate Theater, which is a landmark in Elsberry, was destroyed. Also ruined was the Closet, which is run by the local baptist church. The Closet provides food and clothing to 100 needy people a week and assists at least 2,000 families in the region.

The fire department said the fire was caused by a faulty furnace in that store.
