I V Minerals Fire update

Posted by wlpo on September 11, 2011

A dawn fire south and east of Tonica is extinguished with help from Tonica and other area fire departments. Todd Anderson is Tonica’s Assistant Fire Chief. Anderson told AM 1220 WLPO news a manufacturing building caught fire on property owned by Illinois Valley Minerals and Dauber INC just before 6am Sunday. The building is owned by Illinois Valley Minerals on property shared with Dauber INC on North 18th road. Anderson said 75% of the building was still standing when the fire was extinguished around 9am. Tonica received assistance from LaSalle, Leonore and Lostant. Anderson believed Dauber INC would be unaffected…however, Illinois Valley Minerals may be shut down for a time. There were no injuries reported.
