More than a dozen fire departments helped battle a blaze this morning as 12701 East Stateline Road in the Town of Clinton. Deputy Fire Chief Larry London says the fire in a 30-by-100 foot shed was reported around 5:30 a.m. A passerby noticed the flames from the road and woke up the homeowner. London says the bitter cold hampered the response with one truck's pump freezing, and a lot of ice forming around the structure. Personnel were on scene more than five hours, and the building is a total loss. The cause is under investigation.
