HUNTERTOWN, Ind. (WPTA) - A Wednesday morning fire at a warehouse on Huntertown’s north side is under investigation by two state agencies, officials say.

Huntertown Fire Department Assistant Chief Tyler Treesh says they were called to the warehouse, near W Shoaff and Lima Roads, around 5 a.m. He says a passerby saw the fire and called 911.

He says the department didn’t have its usual manpower as several crews were helping with a fatal crash along I-69, so they had to call area firefighters for help. Once they had enough units, they had the fire under control in about 30 minutes.

Treesh says the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office was called in to investigate as the warehouse was storing pull tabs. They say the Indiana Gaming Commission is also sending an investigator.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The original report stated the building was owned by Seamless Flooring Solutions, but the building is owned by JHAM Properties.
