11 Closson Lumber Fire

A pre-dawn fire Friday, July 8, at Closson Lumber, 815 Erie Ave. in Logansport, burned multiple buildings to the ground. Opened on the site in 1902, the lumberyard had been a constant in the city for generations. Every Logansport fire truck and firefighter on duty responded to the blaze, which had fully engulfed the buildings before they arrived. Investigators said the cause of the fire could not be determined. Photos by J. Kyle Keener | Pharos-Tribune
