Firefighters put out fire on corn crib roof

NT Staff

STANDARD — Standard and Granville firefighters prevented major damage to an old, long-out-of-use corn crib that caught fire at about 3:55 p.m. Friday on Greenhouse Road about 1½ miles east of Route 89 in Putnam County.

Standard fire chief Mike Skowera said residents were burning some household trash, an ember went up onto the crib and caught part of the roof on fire. Granville Fire Department sent a water truck and firefighters, but firefighters did not have to set up a water reservoir. Firefighters on a fire engine had the fire out quickly.

“Onboard water was enough. We didn’t have to dump any tankers,” Skowera said.
Standard firefighters left the scene by 4:28 p.m.
