Fire investigators are now looking into what caused two buildings to catch fire overnight Monday.

Both sawmill buildings were destroyed between Plymouth and Colchester, Illinois

The call came in around 2:30 Monday morning.

Crews said flames were shooting 12 to 16 feet above the roof when they got on scene.

One of the buildings had sawdust in it, the other was a drying building, which was not in use.

The owner of the sawmill says it a fairly minor loss for the mill.
