At approximately 9:01 p.m. Saturday, several calls came into the St. Marys Fire Department reporting a barn fire at 15373 Lambert Road, St. Marys. When crews arrived, they found a barn engulfed in flames.
"Our main concern was the surrounding buildings so we were protecting those exposures," St. Marys Firefighter Jason Noonan told The Evening Leader. "The barn was a total loss."
WAPAKONETA — The Minster softball team never said die.
The Wildcats scored a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to keep their tournament alive and then clinched the Division IV district title in bizarre fashion in the bottom of the ninth for a 6-5 victory over the Crestview Knights at Wapakoneta on Friday.
While trying to intentionally walk Michaela Goettemoeller in the ninth, Crestview was called for an illegal pitch, which allowed the winning run to score. The issue involved the catcher’s positioning on the intentional walk.
