CARLOCK – Fire ripped through a large metal shed in rural Carlock Thursday afternoon destroying several vehicles inside.
Several area departments were called to aid the Carlock Fire Protection District in fighting the blaze at 8540 U.S. Route 150, about 1 1/2-miles east of Carlock.
The call came in about 12:55 p.m.
A semi-tractor trailer, a pickup truck, and two or three motorcycles were lost as Fire Captain Michele Becker estimated damage at $300,000.
She said no one was in the shed when the fire started, and no firefighters were hurt.
A motorist driving on Route 150 said she saw smoke about a mile away from the fire scene.
Several fire departments were called to help because “we needed lots of water,” said Becker
She said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
Aiding Carlock were firefighters from Danvers, Hudson, Congerville, Dale Township, and Towanda.
