Prayers for T & R Electric in Colman. They are currently dealing with a large structure fire. Flandreau, Colman, Chester and Madison Fire Departments are battling the fire. 1 building was completely lost. A 2nd building is almost gone and a 3rd building had a fire, however, that was able to be put out. It is so sad to watch the live stream of the fire. Praying that staff and fire responders are safe."
