Updated: Copia Urban Winery Heavily Damaged by Fire

Dec 29, 2007 at 9:58 am

A fire at Copia Urban Winery (1122 Washington Avenue) seriously damaged the restaurant and forced the evacuation of nearby loft apartments, reports KMOX. More details as I learn them.

UPDATE: Investigators have determined it was arson, reports the Post-Dispatch.

UPDATE #2: Here are a couple of photos I took this afternoon. The first is from across the street; the second is right up at the police warning tape.
