A major fire devastated downtown Fowler on Saturday morning.  The fire, which destroyed several businesses, also claimed an apartment described as the temporary home of a family of four. They were not injured.

A GoFundMe was launched to help support the young family within hours of the fire, and had already collected more than $6,000 of the $10,000 goal by Saturday evening.

Numerous departments across Clinton and Ionia counties worked for hours to contain the fire.  Brittany Koenigsknecht documented the battle in a photo album -- see it here.  She told Lansing Integrity "The teamwork the departments showed was outstanding!"

Assisting Dallas Township/Fowler was St. Johns, Ionia, Lyons Twp. Pewamo, Portland Area, Ovid Middlebury, DeWitt Area, Delta Twp., Westphalia Twp. and Maple Rapids.

The Kandle Shack, Becker's Bridal Mothers and Quality Carpet are all connected and we're told are total losses.  An additional business is reported to have suffered smoke damage.  The businesses were open at the time of the fire, but all inside were able to escape and no injuries are reported.

The businesses share the same downtown block as Fowler Hot Spot, however, that business is not attached to the buildings where the fire occurred.
