Stockbridge Firefighters battled a blaze that erupted early Monday morning at Fire House Neon Signs on 104 Herbert St. in Stockbridge. Occupants from all nearby buildings were evacuated until the fire could be brought under control.
The department was called at 3:15am by the business owner, Matt Severson, who was inside the roughly 60×40 foot building when the fire started, said Fire Chief Russ Stowe. The chief reported the cause of the fire is unknown, but is being investigated by Ingham County Sheriff’s Department. The building and contents were a total loss.
Being a neon sign shop it was filled with flammable materials and items, said Police Chief Johnnie Torres. He also reported that a nearby transformer and phone cables were damaged and Stockbridge Village phone lines were disabled.
