Several fire companies from Indiana work together to put out a fire at a Pittsboro steel facility



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Sunday night, several Pittsboro fire units worked together to put out a fire at a steel mill in Hendricks County.

The Pittsboro Fire Department reported that at around 8:52 p.m., personnel arrived at Steel Dynamics. When first responders arrived on the scene, they discovered smoke emanating from a structure on Steel Dynamics’ southwest-facing land.

Emergency responders were led by workers at the scene of the incident to the inside of the building, where the fire originated. According to PFD, the fire broke out in a storage pit used for cutting and molding super-heated steel products.

The fire was kept from spreading beyond the storage pit by the firefighters. PFD stated that the cause of the fire is still being looked at, but it was put out fast.

The Brownsburg Fire Territory said on Facebook that the fire was out by 9:51 p.m., which is less than an hour after the crews were sent to the scene.

The Brownsburg Fire Territory and the Avon Fire Department provided support to PFD on the site. Neither firefighters nor employees of Steel Dynamics were hurt in the event.
