There is extensive damage this (Thursday) morning to Jefferson City’s Probation and Parole district office, following an overnight fire on West Main.

The blaze broke out at about 3:30, and closed streets around the building, which is near Highway 179. Firefighters are still on-scene handling overhaul and salvage operations. The fire’s cause is under investigation. Turner says the state Fire Marshal’s office is heading to the scene.
