 A landmark building in Erie, Ill. has been destroyed by fire.

The call came in around 5:13 p.m. on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 to the four story structure that was a former feed mill.

Erie Fire Chief Doug Rutledge says the building was made of wood with metal siding and estimated to be at least 75-years-old.

Firefighters had an issue with a fire hydrant at the scene having weak water pressure.

Despite this,  Rutledge says they were able to put the fire out with assistance of the Albany, Hillsdale, Prophetstown, Lyndon, Cordova, Morrison and Port Byron fire departments.

The structure is a total loss.

Chief Rutledge says no one was hurt inside the building, but one firefighter was treated and released with a shoulder injury.

The fire is being investigated, but no cause is known at this time.
