Reportedly, a trash fire on Booker St. behind the home of Leo Salmon in Vandalia, accelerated by strong winds Monday afternoon. The fire spread to a storage building on the property and consumed the structure. Flames and a propane tank within a few yards of those flames caused concerns to local residents and Vandalia Rural Fire Department firefighters on the scene. The department was able to extinguish the fire in the area before any further damage was caused.
