HONESDALE A fire broke out on Wednesday afternoon at the former DSFI building at Fourth and Main in Honesdale. It was around 2:30 p.m. when the fire was reported.According to Honesdale Police Chief Joe LoBasso, the initial report was that some workers were using torches to cut up metal inside the building and apparently caught some cardboard on fire.The chief said the workers told authorities they were using the torches and had left the building for a break. When they came back inside, they found the cardboard on fire and reported it to authorities.A fireman on the scene said because it was cardboard and paper which caught fire, there was a lot of smoke but the flames were extinguished quickly.The building has been empty for quite some time. There are plans in the works to tear down part of the building and turn the rest into a CVS pharmacy. Those plans, however, have yet to be approved by Honesdale Borough council.Several fire companies were on the scene of Wednesdays fire.
