Fire destroys Hersey home

A fire in Hersey broke out this morning at the home of James Wein on Big Stone Lake Road just outside of the village. The home is a total loss, but no one was injured in the fire.

The fire originated from a wood stove and began at approximately 9 a.m, Wein said. Fire crews worked on containment this morning as the house fell. Crews from both the Hersey and Reed City fire departments joined together to douse the flames.
