Juanita Willis arrived at work Monday morning to discover her office on fire and smoke pouring out the door.  She called 911 to report the fire around
8 a.m.  Presho Fire Department responded to the Willis Vet Supply located at the top of Presho Main Street and found the fire was in the apartment located behind the vet supply office.

The fire appeared to have started near the furnace, which may have automatically came on due to cold overnight temperatures. “The floor and walls in the apartment were burned and there was smoke damage throughout the building,” stated fireman Dave Cole. 

According to John Willis, the office held several flammable and toxic products that could have caused much more damage had the fire reached them.

Dr. Willis operates his veterinary business from the office in Presho and an additional office at Chamberlain.
