Fire Call in Tell City, Indiana
Tell City IN: At approximately 12PM EST a call went out to the local fire department concerning a warehouse fire in downtown Tell City, the SERVPRO marketer for the area was heading out of town after making calls but after seeing the smoke he headed back to the source of the fire.
First responders had all the street access around the warehouse blocked off for obvious safety reasons so the Marketer parked his vehicle in a safe location and walked to the scene. The fire had spread throughout the building and flames were leaping out of the top of the building and it was obvious at this point that this was a total loss.
Local news sources stated the building was the old Swiss Plywood building and was owned by Tell City Port Authority and the fire started accidentally, the building was being used for the community and thankfully nobody was injured.
The SERVPRO rep managed to get about 150 yards from the building outside the perimeter of the safety zone set up by the first responders and could still feel the waves of heat from the fire. After about 45 minutes parts of the building stared to collapse, the fire crew did all they could to contain the fire and according to some locals that the marketer spoke to, other Fire departments from another town had been called in to help. It wasn't until later on into the evening was the fire finally dealt with.
