$2 million dollar loss at Shamrock


That fire we reported extensively on on October 19th at the Shamrock Vacuum Company on Highway 90 east of Ames may have been the biggest fire in the south end of Liberty County, at least in a couple of decades, maybe more. Liberty Fire Chief Brian Hurst said damages are over $2 million dollars. Every fire department in Liberty County was called out for mutual aid. The call came in at shortly before 3 AM on the morning of October 19- a Saturday morning. All of those, except for the City of Cleveland, did respond.  The Cleveland Fire Chef apologized that he did not have enough personnel to leave the north end of the county unprotected.  Yesterday, we got the first report on losses. Liberty City Fire Marshal Steven Grimm, said his investigation determined cause of the inferno is an accidental electrical short in a piece of equipment.  It started, most likely, in the frontal area and spread thru the shop destroying the building and its equipment. Chief Brian Hurst said what was not destroyed by flames was destroyed by the use of a track hoe to pull out the walls necessary to reach the balance of the flames. Our reports referred to the business as inside the city of Liberty. Chief Hurst explained the city limits of Liberty wraps around Ames taking in an area from County Road 1909 and on to FM 2830. It’s a large swath of property brought into the city of Liberty many years ago.  Again, that fire was reported before 3 AM on Saturday October 19th causing over $2 million dollars in damage. The inferno destroyed the Shamrock Vacuum Service-address 11,616 East Highway 90. The building was only about 14,000 square feet but equipment inside added to the losses. The business was owned by Lance Carr. Cause was thought to be an accidental electrical short.
