Craigmyle and Delia fire­fight­ers had a busy week last week as they at­tended to two sep­a­rate struc­ture fires oc­cur­ring on Thurs­day evening.

On the evening of Thurs­day, June 30 the Craigmyle and Delia Fire De­part­ments re­sponded to a call of a wooden grain bin south of Craigmyle that had caught fire dur­ing rains and thun­der­storms in the area.

The fire was quickly con­tained by the de­part­ment, but soon af­ter they were fin­ished, the de­part­ments re­ceived an­other call around 1:00 a.m. of a fire oc­cur­ring on the west side of the Craigmyle His­tor­i­cal Church.

Seren­ity Wood of the Craigmyle Fire De­part­ment at­tended the scene and said the ex­te­rior elec­tri­cal box caught fire and caused mi­nor fire and smoke dam­age to the church.

The church will re­main closed un­til an­other elec­tric box is in­stalled at the site.
