It’s an early wake-up call, today (Tuesday morning), for the Gravois Fire District which responded to a reported wood working shop in the 100 block of South Main Street.
Deputy Chief John Scheper says firefighters entered the building on its lower level and found a small blaze in a waste paper basket which, likely, was a case of spontaneous combustion…“Linseed Oil mixed with a rag ignited sometime during the night…it was in an enclosed area of the basement and was very oxygen deficient.”
Damage was kept to a minimum.
Providing mutual aid was the Sunrise Beach Fire District.
Personnel were on the scene for about an hour.
