At 8:33am, the initial alarm was received for a fire at the Best Feeds store on McKnight Road in Ross Township. Companies on scene included Berkeley Hills, Laurel Gardens, Perrysville, Quaill, Highland, and Fairview’s Air Truck. Sub-freezing temperatures and hazardous materials inside the building contributed to the fireground difficulties. The building was a total loss and the building was rebuilt with a new building on the same spot – now occupied by Jared’s Jewelry next to Denny’s.
