Fire Destroys Machine Shed, Tractors & Other Farm Equipment

Mon 4-5-2021

(Wallingford)-- A fire early Sunday destroyed a machine shed about two miles east of Wallingford.

Firefighters were called around 12:01 am to 4250 230th Street and found the building completely engulfed along with some trees that were on fire. The Estherville and Gruver Fire Departments were then called for assistance.

Wallingford Fire Chief Jared Fischer says the fire destroyed several tractors and other farm equipment.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation but Fischer says it may have been the result of a fire earlier in the evening that re-kindled.

Firefighters were on the scene nearly two and-a-half hours.

No injuries were reported.
