Can I say the action noun in this usage

I want to say ‘the city is destroyed into ashes’ more poetically and uniquely. Can I say ‘the city is with destruction into ashes’? More specifically, there’s no city because of destruction and just the ashes are left.


You cannot say "destroyed into" at all. Nor can you say "the city is with destruction"

One could say "The city was destroyed. Nothing but ashes remains." or "The city was burnt to ashes." or "where the city once stood only a heap of ash remains."
