Investigation Continues Into Firehouse Fire

The inves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues today into a fire that destroyed the Flo­rence Town­ship Fire Depart­ment in Williams County on Sun­day. Two fire­fight­ers were taken to the hosp­tial, but no word yet on the nature or extent of their injuries. It hap­pened around 7 Sun­day evening, when flames report­edly broke out in the appa­ra­tus area of the fire depart­ment on South Michi­gan Street in Edon. Fire­fight­ers got the grass rig out, but the major­ity of the department’s equip­ment, includ­ing two engines, a tanker and heavy res­cue truck, were lost in the fire. The fire depart­ment was set to be a polling sta­tion for today’s elec­tion. Res­i­dents should now go to the Edon Com­mu­nity Cen­ter on Park­way Street to vote. If you would like to donate to assist the Edon fire­fight­ers fol­low­ing Sunday’s account has been estab­lished at the Edon State Bank under the Edon Min­is­te­r­ial Asso­ci­a­tion. Dona­tions are being accepted there for the forsee­able future.
