MILROY, Ind. (WISH) - Seven fire departments responded to a business fire in Rush County Tuesday morning.
Two buildings were destroyed as a result of the blaze at Milroy Pallet Company, 3018 W. 1050 S., Milroy.
No one was injured in the fire, but crews from three different counties helped extinguish it. The fire began around 8 a.m.
Firefighters say they were fortunate the blaze did not spread to the stock piles of wood pallets.
"We had a lot of heavy black smoke. There was some explosions from propane tanks going off inside the building — forklifts and stuff. It was a rather interesting situation to start out with," said Chief Nick White of the Andersonville Volunteer Fire Department.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
