FIRE COMPLETELY DESTROYED a large steel shed on the Brad Bazille farm on 250th Street in the Town of Emerald. Fire started in the shed from a welding torch being used by Cory Bazille to weld on his mud buggie. All the contents of the 70 ft. by 80 ft. shed were lost in the flames. The Glenwood City Fire Department received the call shortly before eleven on the evening of Thursday, September 27 and when they arrived on the scene the entire building was in flames. Lost were 4 pickup trucks, a pontoon boat, a 32 foot fiberglass boat, a farm tractor, a four wheeler and many tools. Firefighters from United Fire assisted the Glenwood City Department. A large backhoe from Albrightson Excavating was called to the scene to remove the sheet metal that had fallen into the structure so firefighters could extinguish the burning items under the metal. Glenwood City Firefighters also were called to a small grass fire on the Denzil Dayton property on 135th Avenue in the Town of Glenwood on Saturday afternoon. Here a small area of tall grass was burned over.
