Warehouse fire breaks out in Streator

Posted by wlpo on June 10, 2016

A warehouse fire proved to be a day long fight for Streator firefighters.

At around 4 Thursday morning, firefighters rushed out to McKernan Packing Company. Once inside, firefighters saw smoke throughout the large warehouse with the sprinkler system spraying water. For the next 10 hours or so, firefighters were spraying water on pallets full of boxes with plastic bottles.

Nobody was injured in the fire. The warehouse itself took on only minor structural damage.

The exact cause of the fire is under investigation.
