Fire at Local Business Rekindles, Causes $20,000 in Damages

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford business is dealing with even more damage to the building Sunday after a fire that caused hundreds of thousands in damage, rekindles.

Rockford fire fighters were back at Rodgers Brothers Galvanizing early Sunday morning after the roof caught on fire. Crews say it was small and it didn't take long to get the fire out, but fire fighters stayed for a few hours to make sure it wouldn't rekindle again.

On Saturday, a much larger fire caused about $250,000 in damage. The roof fire added another $20,000 to that total.
