MONTGOMERY COUNTY HIGHWAY DEPT. FIRE:
A large fire at the Montgomery County Highway Department damaged or destroyed nearly all of the department's snow plows. The fire started around 8 p.m. Sunday in a garage that housed as many as 13 vehicles. The Crawfordsville Fire Department says that due the high dollar amount of damage caused by the fire, they are turning the investigation over to the State Fire Marshal. Learn more here.
