A vacant structure belonging to local pharmacists Sparky and Cindy Hedden caught fire Feb. 10. The building had not been lived in for around a decade, but was still used for storage. The fire was fought by the Sheridan, Cane Creek, Calvert and Center Grove fire departments with assistance from Sheridan Police Department, Grant County Rescue and MEMS. Sheridan Fire Chief Tim Stuckey said that the majority of the structure was lost to the fire. The fire department was unable to find anything that could have caused the fire, so the case has been turned over to the police department. Stuckey also said that the house was built with a lot of wood, which made it burn a lot longer than most fires. Stuckey thanked the community for their help during the hours long fire fight as several people brought the firefighters bottled water, and restaurants provided meals for those battling the fire.
