239 Chestnut was destroyed by the blaze, and work will begin next week to bring the remains of the building down.

"It hits pretty hard because the 200 block of Chestnut Street is one of the most intact blocks of 19th-century fabric we have in the entire city," said Paul Steinke of the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia.
