The city of Bryan is helping another city get back to normal after a fire swept through its city hall.

Earlier this month officials ruled a fire in Calvert arson, and they say the reason it was set was to cover a break-in.

The fire destroyed the city secretary's office, including computers and other equipment.

In response, the city of Bryan offered assistance.

The city provided information on buying new equipment and lent three computers and a printer to help Calvert get back to business.

"I think we're in the business of helping people," Cory Bluhm with the City of Bryan said. "I mean as a city you not only help your own citizens but you'll help those around you. They do the same type of work we do and it's only courteous"

The investigation continues into the cause of the fire and the search is on-going for suspects.

Crime Stoppers has received a few tips but so far there are no leads.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Office of the State Fire Marshall are working the case.

Due to damage, Calvert's city secretary's office has moved to 613 Main Street.

Calvert's Police Department and city courts have moved to 109 East Hanna Street.
