Sheldon, Iowa — Details have been released about a fire call that damaged buildings in northwestern Sheldon on Friday night.
According to Sheldon Fire Company Chief Jerry Meyer, the Sheldon Fire Company was called about 8:16 p.m. that night to a structure fire at 450 Park Street in Sheldon.
He says when they got there, they saw heavy smoke and flames coming from the roof intersection of two combined buildings.
Meyer says firefighters attacked the fire with water mixed with firefighting foam and had it under control within minutes and then began the overhaul.
Firefighters were on scene for approximately 4 hours. No injuries were reported, says Meyer.
He says that the buildings, which were used for storage, sustained considerable damage, but no dollar estimate of the amount loss is available.
Meyer reports that the cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
He says the Sanborn Fire Department helped out, providing mutual aid; and that SCAT, law enforcement and Sheldon Emergency Management helped the Fire Company as well.
