GERRY - A fire destroyed much of a home in Gerry on Wednesday. According to Carl Fransen, chief of the Gerry Fire Department, a call came in at 3:13 p.m. for a fire at 2842 Gerry-Ellington Road in Gerry. When the first truck arrived at the scene a short time later, flames were seen coming out of all of the second-story windows in the home. Several area fire departments worked together to control the structure fire, but the house looked to be a total loss. A fire investigation team was called in to the incident and the investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
