DELHI — Records and documents inside the Delhi Masonic Lodge’s archival library were destroyed during Thursday’s structure fire on Main Street, officials said.The fire broke out at about 6:30 a.m. in the kitchen of The Village Pizzeria and Restaurant, located at 106 Main Street. The Delhi Masonic Lodge No. 439, housed on the second floor of that building, has extensive smoke and water damage, officials said, and the members of the Lodge will have to find a new place to meet, at least temporarily.Tom Little, Delhi’s code enforcement officer and a trustee for the Lodge, said the Lodge’s kitchen floor fell through. Its library was also hit hard, according to Bill Morley, secretary of the Delhi Masonic Lodge.”There were records and notes dating back to the 1800s,” Morley said Thursday. “There’s no replacing that. But at least no one was hurt.”
