Fire Claims Wishek Business

Posted:

A Wishek business is a complete loss following an afternoon fire.

The Wishek Fire Department got the call around 12:30.

Fire Chief Dave Just says no one was injured but Central Iron is a complete loss.

The business is located in downtown Wishek.

Just says it's a welding business. He says oxygen and acetylene tanks inside made it a dangerous fire to fight.

He says his crews had issues with lines freezing up and that the street is iced over.

There was no damage to any buildings next to Central Iron.

Just says the Lehr Fire Department helped as did many community members.

Highway 13 into town was shut down and traffic rerouted for several hours Sunday afternoon.

Just says the fire is under investigation.
