Highland-Pierron firefighters were called to a shed fire on Bob White Avenue north of Pierron just before noon Thursday. Highland-Pierron Fire Chief Steve Plocher told WGEL the shed was fully involved and the roof had collapsed when crews arrived. The shed and its contents – three tractors and other farm equipment – were a total loss. Firefighters were able to save a nearby barn, which was not damaged.
Firefighters from the Greenville and St. Rose Fire Protection Districts provided mutual aid and personnel were on the scene for about two hours.
Plocher said the cause of the blaze remains undetermined.
