Mutual Aid Helps Save Home
By Mike Brothers
A rubbish fire got out of control at Mast Construction northeast of Sullivan June 8, destroying three buildings plus raw construction materials valued at more than $250,000.
Sullivan Fire Department was dispatched at 7:14 p.m. to the 1560CR 1475E Sullivan location owned by Chester Mast whose business involves constructing prefabricated walls for homes. He stated that a large number of pre-fab walls were stacked outside ready to ship.
Those prepared walls along with multiple bunks of raw lumber stacked around the site created a scene of intense heat and fire by the time firefighters arrived on the scene.
Sullivan Fire Captain Larry Edwards explained that at 7:24 pm when equipment first arrived at the scene, fire had engulfed the first shed and the stacks of pre-fab walls.
