Fire damages Mid American Growers

Posted by wlpo on February 20, 2012

Heavy smoke greeted firefighters at Mid American Growers in Putnam County.  A night watchman called for the fire department after noticing smoke in the company’s shop late Sunday night.

Standard Fire Chief Michael Skowera says it looks like the fire started in a tractor parked in the shop.  Several small tractors and carts were destroyed.   He says they kept the fire to the shop but smoke got into the greenhouse.

They were at the plant for about two hours.
