WINSLOW (KFSM) – Firefighters responded late Wednesday afternoon to a fire call at the Provence Sawmill near Winslow, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office.

When firefighters arrived they discovered a former chicken house being used for storage was engulfed in flames.

Firefighters said the fire was too hot to fight, so they had to let the structure burn. A fire line was set up around the blaze to keep it from spreading.

A woman said she saw smoke and heard an explosion in the northern part of the county.

No injuries were reported.
