Fire Destroys Independence Warehouse
INDEPENDENCE, Iowa - A fire destroyed a warehouse and business in Independence this morning.
It started about 7:30 a.m. Thursday at an empty building on Highway 150, just south of Highway 20.
Firefighters said it was a former storage building for Iowa Engineering Processing, but they weren't sure what was stored inside.
Crews were able to get the fire under control, but not until it destroyed the building. They worked on the scene for about five hours.
Investigators are still looking for what caused it. No one was hurt.
