COPY-Blaze rips through Thumb-area business

Posted: Updated:
A family business that has served farmers in the Thumb for many years is nothing more than debris and ashes after fire ripped through the building Tuesday.

The blaze at Kuhl Construction in Sebewaing, broke out around 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. Kuhl's is a metal fabrication business that has served the community for years.

Mention the name Kuhl and you'll hear stories of bean bins welded together to store a farmer's crop or the family that helped keep grain elevators up and running.

The business can be rebuilt but personal memories have been destroyed.

It took crews more than two hours to get the flames under control. No one was hurt in the blaze.

Many people in the community offered assistance removing highly combustible tanks of gases used in the business that could have exploded and wreaked more havoc.

There is no word on the cause of the fire.
