WINDFALL, Ind. — A small Indiana town is seeking reimbursement for 300,000 gallons of treated water used during a recent corncob pile fire.
The Windfall town clerk-treasurer said several volunteer fire departments used the water from their hydrants beginning on Dec. 16.
The fire was at a business in the 3200 block of State Road 213 in Tipton County.
Crews spent nearly a week putting out the stubborn fire.
The clerk-treasurer said the fire is outside of their city limits, and she feels the town should be reimbursed.
Tipton County is roughly 50 miles north of downtown Indianapolis.
