Officials say the fire that destroyed a century-old business in Downtown Scranton does not appear suspicious. 

Flames tore through the Plotkin Shoe and Repair Store near Linden Street on Saturday night.

More than 35,000 pairs of shoes inside were lost.

There is no official cause of the fire.

The owner says it's unclear yet if he'll be able to bounce back from the fire and reopen his business.
