A converted corn crib was reduced to four walls after a fire around noon Saturday about near the the Lee and La Salle County line.

Mendota fireman Brian Fisher says they arrived at 4729 East 6th Road slightly after noon. Fisher said the contents – mostly appliances and kitchen items were destroyed along the ceiling and a deck. The crib is a $25,000 loss. No problems fighting the blaze, according to Fisher.  Fisher said Troy Grove, Earlville and Paw Paw sent equipment and men.
