Fire destroys business shop

Firefighters from the Versailles Fire Dept. were dispatched to 1656 S. U.S. 421, Versailles a little after 10:00 p.m. Monday, April 9. The structure, as seen above, was fully engulfed. The building was Jeff Hafft’s business shop and is owned by Halcomb Properties. Chief Ben Sieverding said water supply was established by laying a five-inch supply line from the hydrant on U.S. 421 back the drive, approximately 400 feet. Versailles Fire Dept. responded with two engines, one rescue, a tanker, two support vehicles and 17 firefighters. Osgood Fire Dept. responded with manpower to assist with the massive blaze. Rescue 69 was on standby. The structure and contents were a total loss, but firefighters were able to save another nearby barn and one vehicle sustained some damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

This partial hull is all that was left of the building after the fire tore through it on Monday night. Versailles fire was on the scene three hours.
