The Decatur Fire Department was dispatched at 6:42 p.m. Sunday to the home of Leo Thieme, 6950 E 700 N, in response to a barn fire.
According to a spokesman for the department, the barn was a total loss. There were no injuries.
Firefighters remained on scene until 12:30 a.m. Monday.
No estimate of monetary damage was given.
Crews were dispatched again at 4:01 a.m. this morning to Fleetwood Motor Homes, 1031 E Hwy 224, in response to what turned out to be a false alarm.
Could the turkey buzzards (or turkey vulture, if you prefer) perched all over a large tree at the corner of Winchester and Schirmeyer streets in Decatur last week been on their way to Hinckley, Ohio?
No matter. Such a congregation of these creatures inside city limits is an unusual sight.
Every year on March 15 the city of Hinckley has eagerly awaited the return of the buzzards at "Buzzards' Roost" at the Hinckley Reservation, part of the Cleveland Metroparks.
