The fire in Milan that destroyed a structure Friday late afternoon was ruled “accidental electrical.”
The Milan fire department received notice of a fire at 3:50 p.m. Friday, and when fire crews arrived, encountered heavy smoke outside, and some flames inside. The structure remains, but the interior is ruined.
The building on Main Street is the former Chris Volz auto dealership and is owned by Len Eckstein. It’s mostly used for storage and the motor homes and campers stored inside were severely damaged.
Five fire departments, including Moores Hill, Dillsboro and Aurora from Dearborn County, assisted Milan and they were on the scene until 10 p.m. They also had to deal with freezing temperatures. Road crews helped provide salt for the area.
