"A tragic fire on Main street tonight. Was held from spreading with heroic effort from our Firefighters and help from many other departments. The burned buildings walls are unstable, so Main street will be affected until things can be made safe. The safety of people, cars and etc are the top priority for now.  We will know more once a better assessment can be made," Bisbee Mayor Ken Budge wrote on Facebook.

Bisbee's downtown area is made up of mostly brick buildings that date back about 100 years. Portions of the city's downtown area remain closed on Thursday.
