Block-Size Building Fully Involved
A 4-ALARM FIRE IN AN ABANDONED FACTORY building Sunday night kept 125 Indianapolis, Indiana, firefighters busy for seven hours.
The call was dispatched at 9 pm and the first units found a 166,000 sq. ft. two- and three-story brick industrial
building complex well involved. The dispatch was steadily elevated reaching four alarms shortly before 11 pm as the crews worked to contain the fire that threatened as many as 15 residences in the nearby area. The homes were evacuated as a precaution.
Around 10:30 p.m., IFD reported there was a partial collapse to the building.
According to a release, 53 IFD units and one Speedway fire unit responded to the fire. There were 10 aerial ladders, 13, engines, two squads and 29 support/command staff battled the fire. An IFD fuel truck was also called to the scene to re-fuel some of the fire engines.
The fire was marked under control at 1:37 am and was declared out at 4 am.
