Cedar yard art shop destroyed

March 27, 2013


Firefighters work to put out a blaze Saturday morning that destroyed the contents of a workshop at Tolar Cedar Works where yard ornaments such as windmills and lighthouses (foreground) were made by Harold Johnson just east of Tolar on Highway 377 West. Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff Young said that the tools and cedar inventory used to make the yard art were a total loss, along with the structure itself, made of wood veneer siding and a metal roof. Young said the cause was ruled accidental/undetermined, but electrical issues were suspected. There were no injuries reported.
