Construction begins Monday to replace the 83-year-old bridge on Highway 5 west of Linden Grove Township. Detours will be posted. The project should be complete in November.
The fire at MAT Incorporated is believed to have started in some equipment and then spread. The extent of damages is not yet known. All employees were safely evacuated.
All three boys were taken to the hospital for treatment of non life threatening injuries. It appears they ran a stop sign and crossed into the path of the train. The accident occured in Bassett Township, east of Hoyt Lakes.
The fire was contained to the kitchen area. Unfortunately, at least two family pets died in the fire. No one was home at the time.
The seasonal load limits have been in place in the North Zone, which covers the majority of St. Louis County, since March 22. Restrictions in the North Central Zone have already been lifted.
