Woolstock and Webster City fire departments respond after fire broke out at a rural property

WOOLSTOCK — A machine shed at a rural Hamilton County property was damaged by fire Thursday morning.

No one was injured, and the structure is still standing.

“It was more or less in the ceiling and walls,” said Woolstock Fire Chief Cory Anderson.

The fire at 1921 Stagecoach Road was reported at 8:46 a.m.

Smoke was coming out of the building when sheriff’s deputies and firefighters arrived.

Anderson said firefighters took hoselines into the building and had to open the walls and ceiling to get at the flames.

Tanker trucks relayed water from Woolstock to the fire scene.

Firefighters worked at the scene for about three hours in temperatures of about 10 degrees.

There were no vehicles in the shed, according to Anderson.

The cause of the fire remains undetermined, he said.

Online records of the Hamilton County Assessor’s Office list the property owner as Richard LLC.

Firefighters from Woolstock and Webster City responded.
