Emergency crews respond after truck catches fire in Newburgh, spreads to building
NEWBURGH, Ind. (WFIE) - Officials with Central Dispatch says crews were called to a building on fire in Newburgh on Wednesday.
Crews on scene say the fire originally started as an insulation truck on fire.
They say that fire then spread to a nearby building.
Officials confirm no one was hurt in the incident, and the fire has been put out.
The building has some damage to the exterior, but fire officials say it could’ve been a lot worse.
“We ended up using a mini excavator to overhaul the back of the truck, pulling the insulation out,” said Ohio Township Fire Department chief, Scott Foreman. “We were able to get it knocked down on the truck pretty quick. Both engine compartment and box compartment, and then the next concern was the building itself.”
According to officials, that building is currently under construction and is located near Bell Pointe Apartments.
Pictures sent in from a viewer showed heavy smoke in the area.
