Fire destroys shed, motorcycles

By Press Release


A fire at 14238 Deer Run Road, Delta, destroyed a shed containing four Harley-Davidson motorcycles, motorcycle accessories and a drying rack for firewood on Dec. 12. The property is owned by Glen and Joyce Conger. Glen Conger says his son was working on a metal project outside the shed that morning. He had put his tools away and left the property when the fire broke out. Conger was at work downtown when he got a call about the fire. He said by the time he got home, the shed had burned to the ground. Vinyl siding on the main residence, located about 50 feet from the shed, was curled and two windows were broken. Three of the four motorcycles stored in the shed were fully insured; the oldest, a 2008, had liability insurance only. The Congers are planning to attend a motorcycle rally in California in June, so they're hoping to begin replacing the motorcycles as soon as they hear from their insurance provider.
