Firefighters respond to recycling bin fire in La Salle

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2009

That wasn’t a heavy fog rolling into downtown La Salle, it was smoke.
Fire fighters ripped through a bin full of cardboard after it started on fire Tuesday night. It happened in the NewsTribune parking lot.  The fire was spotted shortly before 8pm.  Firefighters were on the scene for about 40 minutes.
A truck parked next to the bin appears to be okay even after flames shot well over the height of the truck.
It’s not the first time the recycling bin has started on fire.  It’s unclear what started the fire.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
