Loss of Fire-Damaged Vehicles to Slow Work in Nebraska City

July 28, 2014

Gibbon officials say damage from the fire that destroyed several vehicles and a city shop building wasn’t as bad as feared but still will slow routine maintenance and various projects this summer.

The south-central Nebraska city lost four pickups and a street sweeper in Tuesday night’s blaze. A dump truck, a loader and a road grader were damaged.

No one was injured in the fire, which was fought by crews from Gibbon, Kearney and Shelton. The fire began in the engine compartment of one of the pickups.

City Administrator Chris Rector told The Grand Island Independent that it likely will be months before all the vehicles and tools are replaced.
