No injuries and only minor damages are reported after a fire this (Monday) afternoon at the Navasota Livestock Auction Barn.
Navasota Fire Chief Jason Katkoski says local firefighters and police were called out around 2:30 p.m. to Navasota Livestock, located at 7846 Highway 90.
According to Katkoski, a contractor was working on repairing snow damages to the building from last week’s storm when a cutting torch cut some insulation on the roof.
The fire was quickly contained and extinguished.
Business will continue as usual, with Cow Talk Steakhouse open tomorrow (Tuesday) and the Navasota Livestock Auction open Saturday.
