Jefferson Rural Firemen fight fires that destroy two outbuildings

Jefferson Rural Firemen say fires destroyed a shed and an outbuilding in separate late Friday afternoon fires.

The first call was to a residence on Radisson Road south of Mt. Vernon where a 12 by 16 foot structure caught fire apparently from a lamp in an adjoining chicken coop.   The building contained some family photos and mementos that were lost along with the building.   The fire call came in at 3:32 Friday afternoon.

In the second fire, a 10 by 8 foot storage shed outside a mobile home at Rolling Meadows Mobile Home Park caught fire.   The building was fully engulfed upon the department’s arrival, but they were able to keep it from spreading to a mobile home about ten feet away.

The names of the owners of the two buildings were not immediately available.
