Box Alarm in the Rutland-Dundee Township FPD, 4-24-19

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

A 911 call came in before noon Wednesday at a business at 37W507 Big Timber Road, just west of Randall Road. Firefighters found a lot of fire in the attic of the one-story business, and flames later spread to the main level. The fire was under control by 2:30 p.m. Twelve departments assisted the Rutland-Dundee Township FPD. The cause of the fire , was electrical in nature and accidental.  The loss is estimated at $1.5 million.

The 30-year-old, 9,000-square-foot building was destroyed, along with a skid-steer loader and a variety of construction tools. 

Employees first noticed sparks coming from electrical wires both outside and inside the building, and got the power shut off within 10 minutes.
