Fire destroys a rural Tonica building

Posted by wlpo on September 5, 2013

          If you’re going to have burn pile, make sure it’s away from buildings.  Tonica Firefighters think a fire that destroyed an out building Thursday afternoon may have been started from embers from a nearby brush pile fire.

The out-building west of town was completely on fire when they arrived.  Tonica with the help of the Lostant Fire Department had the fire under control in about 25 minutes. 

The fire is under investigation.
