Crews Battle Isabella County Business Fire

Developing news in Isabella County where crews are braving the arctic air to put out a business fire.

The call came in around 7:00 Tuesday night that CGI Insulation was on fire.

Crews on scene say no one was hurt but it did shut down some roads.

The fire is in Sherman Township.

The roads are blocked off at School and Weidman.

9&10’s Veronica Meadows is on the scene with the latest on this fire.

It is bitterly cold out here as temperatures are in the teens, but with the wind it’s near zero degrees.

That has not stopped fire crews that have been out in the cold since just before 7:00 Tuesday evening.

Hours later they are still here at Central Gypfloors and Insulation putting out hot spots.

The owner of the company tells us he is very thankful no one was inside when the fire broke out but he did lose crucial equipment for his business.

“No one got hurt, it’s just stuff but this is the busiest time of the year and it’s freezing cold and it’s an inconvenience for other people too not just me,” says Owner, Mike Lynch.

Mike does not know how the fire started or how much damage has been done.

He is calling his insurance company Wednesday to start getting back on his feet.
