Anderson Hay warehouse catches fire
The Anderson Hay and Grain Co. warehouse in Aurora caught fire on Jan. 2 at 8:17 p.m. and was still burning as of the morning of Jan. 4, creating a glowing display for I-5 commuters.
Firefighters consider it likely to continue to burn for at least a few days until they can actually control and extinguish it.
The warehouse was storing hay. Aurora Fire Lieutenant Bill Hansen said the fire was under investigation but didn't appear to be suspicious.
Hansen said the fire will be watched until it can be extinguished. Jonas Company is watching the fire 24 hours a day, according to a representative for Jonas, and will call the fire department if anything gets out of control. A water tender truck and hydrants are on site in case the fire flares up again.
Jonas Company will handle the demolishing of the building once the fire is out. No dollar loss had been concluded yet.
