Remains of a garage go up in flames at 3839 County Road 434, west of Shelbina and just south of South Shelby High School Monday afternoon. The Shelbina Fire Protection District and the Shelby Community Fire Department responded.

A fire that was seen by a semi tractor-trailer driver traveling on Highway 36 resulted in the loss of a garage and damage to another out building on Monday afternoon at 3839 County Road 434, west of Shelbina, and just south of South Shelby High School.
   According to Shelbina Fire Protection District Assistant Chief Allan Wilt, the truck driver saw the flames from the highway and called 911.
   Wilt said it is believed that an electrical line that had been damaged during the tornado two weeks ago was dangling and made contact with the building, causing a spark, which started the fire.
   By the time fire fighters were on the scene, the garage was fully engulfed.

   Improvement Project
   Klusmeyer said the project is starting to wind down. He said they still have some things that need to be addressed. They are still waiting on two electric meters that they haven’t received yet. They were able to get a couple of water meters in at the lake. Overall, everything went very well last week with the meter reading process.
   “The only thing that’s hanging out there (to be done) is work on the electric side with our SCADA system. The rest of it is winding down,” Klusmeyer explained.
   He was asked if the new street lights survived the wind storm that came through Shelbina a couple of weeks ago. Klusmeyer said they haven’t lost a light fixture yet.
   He was also asked about the power outage that took place in the north part of town a week ago Sunday. He explained that a semi hit a pole, causing the power outage.
   As far as the city improvement project, Klusmeyer said Schneider Electric won’t come back and do a full system audit for a few months.
