A Thursday afternoon fire caused extensive damage to a Shelby County cornfield. Firefighters and equipment from at least seven departments responded around 4 p.m. to the field at McCloskey School and Knoop-Johnston roads, according to published reports. The blaze destroyed some 50 acres and resulted in an estimated $50,000 damage. Windy conditions hampered efforts to extinguish the dry, standing corn, Sidney fire officials said. Witnesses said smoke was visible from Anna about 14 miles north of the scene. (PHOTOS | BECKY SMITH AND LIBBY THOMPSON)

Energy safe presentation offered at ILES


Representatives from the National Energy Foundation and Vectren gave a presentation Tuesday to Indian Lake Elementary School fourth-graders regarding energy and heating safety. They explained to students the difference between renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Pupils examined pieces of coal and simulated the non-renewable resources formed on the ocean floor. The representatives stressed keeping water heaters and furnaces clear of clutter, avoiding gas meters and calling 811 before digging in yards to locate possible pipelines.  Students also learned about the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning and the smell, sound and sight of a natural gas leak. They received energy safety booklets to take home as well.
