VIDEO/ PHOTOS: Firefighters are still monitoring the scene where a large fire broke out in Malvern on Monday evening. The question now is what the status is of a few of the other buildings in the area. Crews from roughly a dozen agencies have helped at the scene and continue to water down hot spots from the fire. Tom Mulholland, the owner of Mulholland Grocery which was damaged in the fire, said the following on Facebook Tuesday morning: "With the efforts of the Malvern Fire Department and those from over a dozen other communities doing everything possible to contain the fire last night, the water supply for the community was exhausted and it has caused a boil order for the community. I apologize for the inconvenience it will cause for hundreds of people. I have reached out to people at my warehouse and they are working on getting a water delivery to the community as soon as they can. I wish I could do more to help."
