Weekend fire claims farm building
A farm in the 18000 block of Hogan Avenue was the site of a large fire early Sunday morning. The Hastings Fire Department received the call at 3:38 a.m. June 12.
The first crews to arrive at the scene saw heavy smoke and flame in one of the outbuildings, said John Townsend, Hastings' assistant fire chief. The fire was already too hot for firefighters to attack it from inside the structure, so they had to manage the blaze entirely from the outside.
