Barn Destroyed In Fire Outside Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on December 12, 2012

It was a late night for area firefighters.

A pole barn was destroyed west of Oglesby along a county road south of Advantage Logistics.  Oglesby fire crews got the initial call around 10 Tuesday night and were on scene for about four hours.  Peru, Tonica and Utica fire departments also helped out.

Oglesby Fire Chief Ron Popurella says a semi parked next to the pole barn had minor damage but a nearby farm house was unscathed.  He doesn’t have a cause of the fire but says it’s not suspicious.
