ROCKFORD - Fire destroyed a landmark grain elevator along Tama Road Saturday night with flames visible as far away as Ohio City, Mendon and St. Marys.
"The thing was fully engulfed before we arrived," longtime Rockford Fire Chief Ralph Rhoades told The Daily Standard. "We could see it and so did a lot of other people."
Neighbors reportedly spotted the blaze around 7 p.m. and called 911. At least seven additional calls were logged, according to Rhoades. [More]
