TELL CITY – Firefighters from two departments battled a blaze Tuesday evening that destroyed a large woodworking shop at the Larry Beatty residence on River Road.

Tell City firefighters were summoned around 6 p.m. and were later assisted by firefighters and trucks from Anderson Township Volunteer Fire Department. The fire destroyed the building and an attached greenhouse.

Firefighters were able to remove several barrels of lacquer that were stored inside. They also kept flames from reaching the Beatty home.

Beatty is a longtime woodworker who made and restored furniture in the building.
