HUMBOLDT ? A riding lawnmower was destroyed by fire in an outbuilding owned by Gary and Jennifer Stalder Saturday, but a rapid response from firefighters helped douse the flames before they could spread.
The Stalders, who live at 242 1200 St., shared their story through an email.
The fire was started by a battery tender attached to a John Deere riding lawn mower.
