Venice Township and Corunna-Caledonia were thanked for their swift response and told they could leave the scene because no fire had been located.  Durand City and Vernon Township worked together to sweep the building from top to bottom, including the use of thermal imaging cameras, but did not find any evidence of smoke or fire anywhere.  Firefighters did encounter steam.

Durand and Vernon Township were preparing to clear the scene shortly before 8:30am.
