Building is destroyed
At approximately 12:04 a.m. today Mexico Public Safety officers and volunteers responded to a structure fire in the 500 block of North Missouri.
Responding personnel found an unattached garage/shop building fully engulfed in flames. Before the fire was extinguished it completely destroyed the building, melted some plastic siding on two homes about 50 to 60 feet away, and caught a tree in an adjacent lot on fire.
The apparent area of origin was where the electrical service entered the building.
There were no injuries from the incident, but a family dog was reportedly in the building and died during the fire.
