Fire destroys wood boiler shed at Etna business

ETNA - Fire crews had to work fast to stop a growing fire today in Etna.

The fire broke out at an auto business on Stage Road around 11:15 a.m. Friday.

 

A large metal shed used to store fire wood for the winter and a wood boiler all went up in flames.

 

Fire crews had to deal with very strong wind gusts that were fanning the flames as they tried to put them out.

 

Assistant Fire Chief Leroy Hall stated "When we arrived we had a boiler shed fully engulfed. Partially collapsed. The wood pile was burning. With the wind blowing and everything else, tried to get it down so it doesn't spread."

 

Fire crews managed to keep the fire from spreading to the shop or into the woods.

 

No word on what started the fire.
