Gainesville officials are uncertain about the fate of the holly tree in downtown Gainesville following a fire that left a section of the tree singed and brown.

The large tree, located at the fork of Academy and Green streets, is often decorated with bows or lights to celebrate holidays throughout the year.

Gainesville Fire Chief Jon Canada said the tree caught fire around midnight June 20, but the cause of the fire is unknown.
