Sumter fire crews continue to battle warehouse fire for more than 15 hours
SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WACH) – Sumter fire crews continue to battle a warehouse fire for more than 15 hours.
The fire happened at the Hodge Distribution and Logistics warehouse on Hauser Street around 4:15 Friday morning.
About 85 percent of the building was on fire when crews arrived.
The fire was so massive the National Weather Service reported that the fire could be seen on the shortwave infrared satellite images.
As of 10 p.m. Friday, officials still do not know what sparked the fire and say it is too hard to tell.
Crews plan to work through the night and into the morning to wet the area and prevent the potential for more flames.
Hauser and Magnolia Streets will remain blocked off until officials clear the scene.
