At 12:28 a.m. today, 2014-11-17-MO, Gilbertville Fire responded to a business fire at Anemone’s Clowns and Coral at 7112 La Porte Road in Washburn.

Upon arrival flames could be seen in the building. Heavy smoke was pushing from the building. Two houses near the business were evacuated and a garage within a few feet of the building was in danger of catching fire.

Live electrical lines on the back of the building melted and snapped from the fire.

The building and contents are a total loss. No injuries were reported while I was on-scene.

I talked with a person that used to work at the business. He said the building was full of fish tanks and salt water fish.

At 4:00 a.m. fire crews were still battling the fire.

Gilbertville Fire was assisted by La Porte City Fire, La Porte City EMS, Hudson Fire, Evansdale Fire, Evansdale EMS Raymond Fire and the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office.
