Video: More than 20 fire departments respond to industrial blaze

The firefighting efforts nearly depleted the town's water supply

WTHR

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. — The fire could be seen for miles Saturday night as the Industrial Pallet Corporation on U.S. 52 in the south west portion of Tippecanoe County caught fire.

We are told the fire started sometime after eight o'clock and before the first fire department arrived thousands of wooden pallets were on fire. Firefighters estimate more than one hundred thousand pallets burned. Twenty-two fire departments and one hundred fire fighters were called to help out.

There are not any fire hydrants located at the plant so water tanker trucks were brought in to haul water to the fire. Fire fighters almost drained the town of Clarks Hill water supply.
