Fireworks Store Blaze Ruled Arson


Last month’s fire at a Rochester fireworks store was deliberately set. Every fire department in Fulton County responded to the July 17 blaze at Windy City Fireworks on State Road 14 at U.S. 31. In addition to flames, they also had to dodge exploding fireworks, which created a sky show that could be seen for miles. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of those involved, according to our reporting partners at WNDU-TV. Anyone with information should contact the Indiana Arson Hotline at 1-800-382-4628 with anonymous tips.
