In the early morning hours of February 3, 2016 many of the buildings in Madelia’s downtown business district were destroyed or damaged by a fire that consumed most of a city block. The fire broke out at about 2:30 a.m. and continued for more than nine hours. By noon firefighters had showered hundreds of thousands of gallons of water to extinguish the flames, but at least five of the buildings on the north side of Main Street were destroyed.
