Update: Tiffin business destroyed by fire looks to rebuild

Posted:

Wednesday night crews were called to Freeman Construction in an industrial park in Tiffin.

They arrived to find the building engulfed in flames.  Nobody was in the building at the time of the fire.

Thursday crews are sifting through the ashes from a building that completely burnt down. Owner Chad Freeman says there's close to three quarters of a million dollars damage. He says two dump trucks, three pickups and a fork lift were housed in the building. The business has been around for more than 26 years.

"Chad's been here for awhile.  He's a significant member of our community and so it's a big loss," said Tiffin Mayor Royce Phillips.

Freeman says he is fully insured and he will rebuild.

Fire crews still looking for what started the fire.
