CHESTERTON | A fire heavily damaged an outbuilding built in 1850 on property in the 900 block of Shannon Drive, Fire Chief Mike Orlich said Friday.

The fire was called in about 6:35 p.m. on property owned by Virginia Galvin, Orlich said.

Galvin told firefighters the log cabin-style building was built in 1850, he said.

The building sustained heavy damage, destroying most of the roof and portions of the walls, Orlich said. There were no injuries.

The cause is under investigation, he said. No damage estimate was available Friday.
