Fire Closes Michigan Boulevard

(Michigan City, IN) - A stretch of Michigan Boulevard in Michigan City started opening back up late this morning after shut down because of a fire.


The fire was at the old Woodruff’s Garden Center near the Michigan City Municipal Golf Course about 9:30 a.m.


Sources say a pallet recycling facility operated there most recently.


We spoke to Gayle Parrett Baugher, who saw the flames and heavy black smoke from her office

window at nearby Fiberbond Corporation.


She said the damage appeared heavy.


“The one building that it was in is pretty much gone,” she said.


Parrett Baugher said some of the pallets kept outside also burned.


We’ll provide more details once they’re made available from the Michigan City Fire Department.
