From a news story from https://www.hometownlife.com/story/news ... 166817002/ of March 15, 2019. The fire was on March 14.
By Susan Vela

Fire damaged about a third of an old train depot in Novi Thursday morning, and city officials must inspect the building to see if it can be revived...

...dispatchers fielded a call about smoke on the north side of Grand River Avenue near the railroad overpass and then an additional call about flames and black smoke pluming from a building near the railroad.

When firefighters arrived at about 7:50 a.m., flames were engulfing nearly half of the building. Four fire engines and nearly 20 firefighters took about an hour to get the fire under control.
