Rubbish fire reported at Westclox building

Posted by wlpo on February 20, 2012

A strong breeze is all it takes to stoke the smoldering embers at the former Westclox building in Peru.  And Monday was windy enough.

Firefighters returned to the building late Monday morning after Peru Building Inspector Frank Taylor noticed smoke.

Firefighter Gary Eccles says they found bundles of carpet remnants burning in the southwest corner of the middle building that was destroyed during the blaze on New Years Day.  They had it out in under an hour.
