A fire razed the Busch Farm Service building on County Road 550 South in Pulaski County early Friday morning. According to Francesville Fire Chief Tim Wuethrich, the fire occurred shortly after 9 a.m. and was caused by an electrical issue.
The building was a total loss. Both the office and shop were completely destroyed by the inferno, but Wuethrich says they were able to save the office computer and other records before the fire could reach them.
Fortunately, no one was inside the building when the fire started and no injuries have been reported. Mutual aid was requested from Buffalo, Monon, and Medaryville fire departments, but even with the extra assistance, Wuethrich says the fire continued until they were finally able to control it shortly after 12 p.m.
