Fire On Barge Destroys Shed

By Staff | Feb 2, 2012

A shed on a barge owned by Marietta Industrial Enterprises and docked at West Bank Harbor located just south of Ormet and north of Hannibal caught fire Thursday morning at approximately 10:45 a.m. MIE employees said no one was near the shed, formerly a tool shed now used as a lunch room, when they noticed smoke coming from it. No one was injured during the blaze that completely destroyed the small structure and its contents. Fire departments from Sardis, Clarington, and New Martinsville responded to the incident, as did the Clarington Emergency Medical Squad.
