THE NEXT DAY
The fire that ripped through the old Wagner Seed and Packing factory left the 147 year old historic building in a pile of rubble today.
Fire Officials estimate that flames were shooting up to 75’ in the air and they have said that this fire for sure is one for the record books as being the largest fire in Wellington history.
Although a determination of what caused the fire is still somewhere down the roads, Officials do not believe it was arson saying nothing here points in that direction.
Citizens and City Officials are all hailing Wellington Firefighters and the Firefighters from the surrounding Departments who aided in the battle for their exceptional work at this blaze. Nicole Perkins who works close by and witnessed the early moments of the blaze said she was impressed by the performance of all the Firefighters and was happy that they were all ok.
