Fire_RoseRoad_6Plymouth Fire Chief Rod Miller says the 4-alarm fire Tuesday night so thoroughly destroyed the building that a cause of the blaze cannot be determined.

Firefighters from Plymouth, Culver, Polk Township and Washington Township not only battled a fully engulfed barn fire about 10:45 Tuesday night, but the high wind gusts that caused the fire to rage out of control.

Fire_RoseRoad_4The structure was a storage barn with a shop area located at 7689 Rose Road and owned by Ken Rodgers.

Firefighters had to shuttle water from the Plymouth city limits to the site to battle the blaze. Chain-Of-Lake Service assisted fire fighters by bringing excavating equipment out to gain access to the interior of the structure and help get to “hot spots”.

Fire_RoseRoad_5Fire crews were on the scene till well after 2 a.m.

No injuries were reported and the building was a total loss.
