Firefighters were dispatched at approximately 11:30 p.m. Wednesday to 1350 N. Wapakoneta Road. Upon arrival, they found a detached workshop at a residence owned by Scott Bechdolt fully engulfed in flames. The building was deemed a total loss. The contents of the structure, which included some construction equipment, suffered heavy damage.
