Fire damage to Public Works mechanic's bay tops $20,000

Email

A fire last month at the Hubbard County Public Works garage caused an estimated $20,000 in damage.

It occurred in the mechanic's bay, possibly caused by a spark from a grinder or combustion that ignited the ceiling.

"They tore down half the roof," said county engineer Dave Olsonawski. "We really don't know what caused it."

The facility had a false wall in it that will be removed.
