Cooling down

Cooling down Members of the Elk Point Fire Department cool down a blaze that started at approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Luther and Becky Andal farm, located on Highway 50 south of Spink. The Vermillion Fire Department was called to assist in fighting the fire, but was informed by the Elk Point firefighters that they could turn back for home before reaching the fire. Becky Andal said she and her husband had been burning grass and weeds earlier in the day on the farm, and she suspected that a spark from the fire may have drifted to the barn. The small building, which was built in 1928, was filled with hay and straw, and the structure and its contents were completely consumed by the fire. "It didn't house any livestock, thank God, just hay and straw, but it was a pretty decent building," Becky said. "We were in the process of re-doing the building so we could put animals in it."
