Fire crews battle large blaze at New Berlin business filled with hazardous chemicals
NEW BERLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Crews from ten departments battled a large fire at plant in New Berlin early Tuesday, May 19.
Firefighters were called to Lincoln Industries -- near S. 166th St. and W. Dakota Ave.-- around 3 a.m., after a mechanical device failed and caused the fire.
Ten departments fought the blaze for several hours, and officials say it was difficult because of the layout of the building.
The fire made it through the roof of the building causing thick smoke to pour out for hours.
