CALHOUN COUNTY, Mich. (July 9, 2014) — Fire crews say the old Bedford Mill building in Calhoun County has been destroyed in an overnight fire, that they believe was the result of an arson.

This amateur video shows the blaze as flames consumed the building, which is located on M-37 near Hutchinson Road.

According to the Bedford Township Fire Chief, the call came in at around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, and the building was completely engulfed in flames when his crews arrived.  It is a total loss.

There has not been a business operating from the old building in years.  Vandalism has been a problem there in the past.
