Flames shot through the roof of a commercial chicken house near Navarre last night.
Five fire departments assisted Wilmot firefighters in calming the blaze that destroyed the 75 foot by 100 foot structure on Lawnfield Street.
Wilmot Fire Chief Nich Schlabach tells the Canton Repository the fire started at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night, and it wasn't fully extinguished until 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.
He says the efforts were "labor intensive" and added that firefighters were able to salvage recently installed milking equipment at the business.
The cause of the fire is not known.
