Warehouse in Greenville Has Burned
Three different fire departments had to be called in to fight a warehouse fire in Greenville, Michigan.
According to WOOD, dispatchers in Montcalm County were notified just after 2 a.m. Tuesday morning about a blaze on the corner of North Clay Street and East Charles Street. Belding, Greenville and Montcalm Township fire departments were all on the scene to fight the blaze.
The building that was on fire was originally built in 1890 which made this fire more difficult to fight since it wasn't structurally sound. This forced crews to have fight the fire from the outside of the building only for their safety.
It took just under 3 hours for the firefighters to get control of the blaze. Crews remained at the scene to continue to put out hot spots once the fire would kick back in. Firefighters really had to wait until daylight to really get a handle on the situation.
Part of the warehouse was used to store the Flat River Community Players, a local arts and drama group, costumes and stage props which all were destroyed. Luckily their Christmas gear for the up coming events were in another location.
The actual cause of the fire has yet to be determined but for now the fire does not look
