Last Tuesday, (Feb. 15, 2022) Coffee County emergency personnel were dispatched for a structure fire in Hillsboro. When crews arrived, Brothers Implement Company was fully engulfed in flames.
Coffee County Sheriff’s Department Chief Investigator Billy Butler told On Target News the investigation by the state bomb and arson division has been completed. With all other ignition sources being eliminated, the fire will likely be ruled as electrical.
The fire destroyed the office, but Brothers Implement is still open for regular business. The office work is now being conducted in the shop area.
As we reported last week, multiple burglaries took place in the Hillsboro last Tuesday. Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call Butler or Investigator Brandon Gullett at 931-728-3591 or Butler’s direct line at 931-570-4406.
