Around 3:30pm October 21, a hog structure caught on fire outside of Ackley. When Ackley Fire Department arrived they called for back up. Wellsburg, Buckeye, Steamboat, Iowa Falls, and Alden all responded.
"The challenges in buildings are always the same in hog buildings because there is tin when you walk into the building, theres tin, then insulation then theres an attic space and then the whole thing in tin" Tom Craighton, Hardin County Emergency Management Coordinator said, "and getting access to where the fire was at was the problem."
Ackley Fire chief called H&H to bring a excavator to help remove the tin roofs to allow access to the hot spots.
