(10-22-21) The Celina and Rockford Fire Departments received a call of a building being on fire at approximately 1:30pm at 10036 US Route 127 (Tim Levi Auction House) at the corner of US Route 127 and Sites.
On arrival there was heavy smoke coming from the building. The building suffered heavy damage. The building owner is Mark Reigelsperger of Coldwater, Ohio. The building and contents were insured.
Assisted at the scene by Rockford, Mendon, Chattanooga, Ohio City, Coldwater, and Montezuma fire departments.
Due to high winds, contents, and a standing corn field surrounding two sides of the building the departments mainly used a defensive attack to keep the fire out of the cornfield. Fire was brought under control in approximately 2 hours.
The Rockford and Celina Fire Department will be doing joint investigation. The fire is under investigation and appears accidental.
