Fire Destroys Montana Agriculture Implement Dealership

January 9, 2015

A farm implement dealership in Conrad, Mont., has been destroyed by fire.

Big Sky Equipment Co. owner Gary Brown tells the Great Falls Tribune his business is a total loss. He says no one was injured and he plans to rebuild the New Holland dealership.

Conrad Volunteer Fire Chief Kevin Moritz tells KSEN-AM that the building was fully engulfed when the fire call came in at 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Moritz says everything in the shop was a total loss including tools, parts, three new tractors, two fork lifts and a sprayer.

Firefighters were able to keep the blaze from spreading to nearby buildings and saved new equipment that was on the lot. A damage estimate was not available.
