Fire destroyed a rural Litchfield building early Wednesday evening.
At just after 5:30pm, the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a structure fire in the 31000 block of Highway 2 in Forest City Township, owned by James and Katie Peterson.
The Litchfield Fire Department and Meeker County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the scene. Upon arrival it was learned a 100’x40′ shed/workshop combined space was smoking heavily from the roof.
The Sheriff’s Office says over the course of battling the fire, the building and its contents were fully engulfed.
The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire but the shed and all contents are considered a total loss.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
