The Hopkinsville Fire Department has deemed the historical Phoenix building on the corner of 9th and Main streets, as dangerous and unsafe to enter, according to chief Steve Futrell.

The decision was made after city officials hired an engineer to check out the property damages and the city will give the property owner 90 days to declare how it will remedy the building’s structural issues.
