Local volunteer fire fighters fought a blaze at the old ice factory Saturday morning (7.16.2022) on U.S. Highway 61 south of town across from the St. Jude subdivision and next to the Head Start school in Ste. Genevieve, Mo.
The structure was completely destroyed as flames sent a humongous black cloud high into the sky that could be seen throughout several sections of town.
No injuries were reported. More details to come in our July 20 edition.
