$25,000 in damages estimated from fires in Mabton

MABTON - The Mabton Fire Department yesterday (Monday) announced that Sunday's fire in the 600 block of Fern Street caused by wind resulted in an estimated $25,000 damage.

One abandoned home was completely destroyed, a garage and its contents were decimated, and a storage shed, as well as an occupied home were slightly damaged.

The fire is believed to be the result of high winds downing a tree, taking out a power line and igniting a field near the structures.
