UNADILLA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say that a southeastern Michigan country store that survived a 1918 tornado has been destroyed by a fire that injured a firefighter.

The fire Tuesday afternoon also destroyed an adjacent home in the unincorporated village of Unadilla. It’s in Livingston County’s Unadilla Township, 40 miles west-northwest of Detroit.

At its peak, the fire sent up a plume of black smoke visible for miles.

Township fire Chief Mark Schroeder tells the Livingston Daily Press & Argus (https://bit.ly/1yLAO2B ) that two firefighters were moving to enter the brick-faced Unadilla Store when it collapsed, injuring one.

The firefighter was in good condition at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor.

Store manager Mike Harbert says it was built in 1871 and says his parents have run it for two decades.
