Firefighters battle storage shed fire
RICHMOND — A plume of smoke that could be seen for miles marked a storage building fire that firefighters from Kalona, Wellman, Riverside and Washington remain fighting. The shed was located in the 500 block of South Street. There was no word what was stored in the building. Radio reports say the shed was located between two residences. A Washington County Sheriff's deputy on the scene advised news media that they had the right to go closer to the fire than the road in front — about 300 yards away — but he strongly cautioned against doing that for safety reasons.
