Fire crews battle intense blaze at Grayling business

An afternoon fire had firefighters scrambling to try and contain the blaze that destroyed a Grayling business.

Firefighters in Crawford County spent much of Thursday afternoon trying to contain and then extinguish a fire that raced through a downtown Grayling building. The fire was reported to central dispatch shortly before 2pm. The caller reported the blaze at the building that once was home to Moshier's Sales and Service. According to witnesses everyone made it out of the business safely, but firefighters were still left with a huge task of trying to keep the fire from spreading. Firefighters made progress on the blaze, only to have it re-ignite later in the afternoon. As of Thursday evening, fire crews were still on the scene working on hot spots.
