HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Newschannel 3 is at the scene of a business fire in Holland Township.
Workers at Holland Alloy on 136th Avenue tell Newschannel 3 that the fire broke out in the building around 6:20 Friday evening.
Employees say they attempted to put the fire inside out with extinguishers, but were unable to do so.
Fire crews from Holland Township, Park Township, Zeeland and Port Sheldon are on the scene.
Fire officials tell Newschannel 3 that there had been a brush fire at the same building earlier in the day when some pallets that were being burned outside kicked off a brush fire. Fire crews responded and put that fire out.
Most of the flames from the fire have been knocked down, and crews brought in heavy machinery to tear down portions of the building’s walls. That structure is likely a total loss.
There is still no word on what may have started the fire Friday evening.
Newschannel 3 will bring you the latest information as it becomes available.
