Fire officials believe a fire that heavily damaged a Marion business was electrical in nature. Jay Kellogg of the Pleasant Township Fire Department says they responded to the fire late Sunday morning to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the southwest corner of a barn owned by Rex Collins Electric on South Miller Avenue. Several other volunteer fire departments as well as the Marion Fire Department assisted in battling the blaze.
No one was inside at the time and no one was injured. Kellogg says damage was extensive. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Pleasant Township Fire Department.
