Fire at Miner business


Multiple fire departments fought a business fire in Miner Monday afternoon.

Dewitt Tools caught fire just before 4 p.m.

Firefighters arrived to find a storage building with heavy black smoke pouring out of it.

Grass and trees were on fire in the back and side of the building as well.

Crews tried to clear wooden pallets and other items near the building to keep the fire from spreading.

Fire crews says the fire damaged most of the main building and destroyed the storage shed in the back of the business.

The fire also destroyed two tractor trailers that were on the property.

Right now investigators still do not know what caused the fire.
