Rockdale fire destroys warehouse, semi trucks at Longhorn Trucking

ROCKDALE, Ailing. (TOC) — A large fireplace destroyed most of a business property belonging to Longhorn Trucking in southwest suburban Rockdale.

The massive blaze engulfed a warehouse and in addition a rising variety of semi vehicles parked across the buildings. Emergency crews labored to comprise it for greater than an hour.

The Manhattan Fireplace District, which responded to help with preventing the hearth, mentioned it’s taking place at a truck restore store. There are not any studies of any accidents.

Rockdale officers haven’t but commented on the hearth.

Thick black smoke billowed from the constructing and vehicles as fireplace crews sprayed water from firetrucks. The smoke was so thick and ample, it was seen on ABC7’s Doppler 7MAX radar.

The fireplace gave the impression to be largely contained and extinguished shortly after 5:30 p.m., although firefighters remained on scene preventing hotspots.

Rockdale is southwest of Chicago, close to Joliet.
