A fire that broke out Thursday morning at a multiuse building on Eau Claire’s near west side devastated a local business and displaced a family of six. Firefighters arrived at 1619 Bellinger St. to find the building that houses Mai’s Food Catering and an apartment above it engulfed in black smoke and flames. The family in the apartment was able to escape without injury. Yer Moua, who owns the building and leases out the first floor to a tenant, was in the upstairs apartment with her husband, Faiter Moua, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren. Family members said a tenant was taken to a hospital. Eau Claire fire Capt. Tony Biasi confirmed that a person on the first floor was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
