Posted by wlpo on August 5, 2016

The Carus Chemical plant in La Salle was evacuated Friday morning after a fire scare.

La Salle and Peru firefighters were called out around 8:30 about an oil fire at the company on 8th Street.  About 20 minutes later, firefighters had the fire out.  The last firefighter left Carus just before 10:30.

Utica firefighters also helped out by covering the La Salle fire station.
