Barry County business destroyed by fire

by

FREEPORT (WKZO) -- Crews are mopping up after a huge early-morning fire destroyed a historic business in Barry County.

Flames broke out around 3 a.m. at Cheesebrough Manufacturing Company on Division Street in Freeport.  Five fire departments battled the blaze for hours.

Cheesebrough was the only company left in the U.S. that manufactured wooden rakes.  The structure was built in 1872.  Officials say there were no injuries.
