UPDATE: No One Injured in Amish Sawmill Barn Fire; Fire Crews Investigating Cause
An Amish sawmill has caught fire early Thursday morning in Leroy Township.
The fire started around 6:15 a.m. at a sawmill barn on Penesal Road.
Leroy-Rose Lake Fire Department says no one was injured in the fire.
“Luckily, there’s no real hazards close by. Everything was a far enough distance away they weren’t initially caught on fire. At this point, we just got to dig through the sheet metal to the rest of the fire but it’s pretty well contained,” said Captain Dale Hall.
Several fire stations were on the scene including Marion, Tustin and Evart.
Fire crews are investigating the cause of the fire.
