The fire district continued work on the building’s structure after deputies cleared the scene, according to the report.

The Sheriff’s Office responded to several other calls between Monday, June 20, and Sunday, June 26, including reports of property damage and theft.

Deputies were dispatched to a theft report in Silver Creek. The complainant stated he had an excavator dropped off at the address last week. In that time, a panel had been stolen off a side of the equipment. The complainant planned to review his neighbor’s security footage for more information.

An unknown man entered a Kimball Junction business and stole several pairs of pants. Employees were able to capture photos of the suspect’s vehicle and license plate number.
