A shop building west of Bolivar was destroyed by a fire that sent a plume of dark smoke high into the air Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 17.

The smoke was visible for several miles, and firefighters were called to the scene in the 600 block of east 450th road around 2:30 p.m.

The address returns to Green Grass Equipment, a lawn mower business, according to signs outside the residence.

Multiple departments responded, including Central Polk County and Morrisville fire protection districts, Bolivar City Fire Department and Dunnegan Rural Fire Department.

CPCFPD chief Robert Dickson told the BH-FP on Tuesday firefighters remained at the scene into the afternoon hours and details about the fire weren’t yet available.
