Wind Conditions Cause Fire South of Lindsay, One Dog Died in Blaze

COLUMBUS – Wind conditions caused a fire just south of Lindsay on Monday afternoon.

Lindsay Fire Department Assistant Chief Terry Beller said the department received a phone call at around 4 p.m. about the fire and him and his team headed to the scene.

Beller said they believe it was the wind that caused fire to start in two storage buildings between the Humphrey and Lindsay area.

According to Beller, it took about 50 firefighters to put out about 80 yards of fire, combining the Newman Grove, Saint Edward, Humphrey and Lindsay fire departments.

There were no people inside the buildings but two dogs were inside and only one was able to be rescued.
