Large Fire Near Independence
INDEPENDENCE, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Four fire departments were called early Thursday morning for a large structure fire near Independence. Firefighters tell CBS 2 News the fire crews got the flames under control but remained on scene to put out hot spots.
Investigators say the fire started on the south side of the structure before engulfing the building in flames. Firefighters say they do not believe anyone was inside the structure when the fire started but they are investigating all possible causes.
Although water lines are not freezing, first responders are battling slush which is making it harder for them to get through and run hoses while they pump water.
