SULLY FIRE: Crews Called To Manufacturing Plant
Dozens of workers were able to make it out of a Sully warehouse without a burn or a scrape Thursday morning.
Fire crews were called to a manufacturing plant in Sully just after at 9 a.m.
Employees at Janco Industries, located at 101 1st Street, were just beginning their break when the building exploded.
The high winds caused the fire to grow quickly but kept the flames away from other nearby buildings.
Sully Fire Chief Mike Vander Molen says the fire was soon contained and crews are cleaning up the scene. No one was hurt in the fire that destroyed the welding portion of the warehouse.
“We’re just thankful that everyone was out and safe and no one got injured,” Vander Molen told Channel 13.
The owner of Janco Industries says he’s already looking for a new place to rebuild and is looking forward to the future.
“It’s like I told me team were going to come back stronger out of all of this. We’ve got a great team and we’re going to come about better and stronger that all of this,” owner Joel Jansen said.
Five fire departments helped to put out the flames and they are still unsure what may have caused the fire.
