First of all,I strongly disagree! In your comment your only info came from the TV, which means you wern't there. When the fire dept gets there within minutes, and the fire is already fully involved they do their best. Their motto is preserve life and property. They could not save the building but they did save alot of inventory.It was a success!Those awesome 50 plus fireman and other volunteers were out there for 14 plus hours, doing their jobs without pay, and you have the nerve to talk badly about them. Where were you? and I bet you wouldn't do it. The paper reported no injuries and at the time that they were there, it was the truth. But there were injuries along with dehydration, exhaustion, and really bad sunburns. I'm willing to bet you wouldn't say this if you watched these fireman you so easily put down running in and out of that fire saving inventory and papers that cant be replaced. It's not important to you, and thats all that matters right!

Ok so you want to place blame where there is no need to place blame. It was a fire. The Firemen where there for how many hours. They were trying their hardest to save the place, but it just could not be saved. It is not their fault. I live in this community and I feel very safe and trust the men and women on our fire departments. It pretty said when you say just let it burn to the ground. You are pretty heartless. But I guess it takes all kinds to make the world go round!!!! But I will be the one to say Thank You for serving us Tama, Toledo, Garwin, Montour and Trear firefighters!!!! You are all the best!!!!

i might be a little slow here, but the tv is reporting this as a complete loss. I don't understand how we can call this such a sucess when the fire department is about 1/2 mile away and couldn't manage to save the place, in spite of having a huge ladder truck. If they can't save a building in town it doesn't give much hope to people in the country. I know alot of people stopped to help but to be honest, it's not like there was anyone to save. the same outcome would have happened if they just let it burn to the ground, instead of soaking and saving the rubble
