The Newberry Fire Department says they were called to a structure fire on M-123 in Newberry just before noon on Saturday, July 24th.

Multiple firefighters responding to the station reported heavy fire and smoke conditions and Columbus Township Fire was also called to the scene.

Fire hydrants were not accessible, so Newberry Fire Command requested Garfield Township Fire Department for a tanker and manpower.

Newberry Fire Department says the bulk of the fire was knocked down by 1:30, but fire units remained on scene for several hours mopping up hot spots until the fire was completely extinguished.

The cause of the fire is still unknown at this time.
