Ackley Structure Fire

Last night Friday around 6pm the Ackley Fire Department got a call for a structure fire at 407 Main St. Home of JK Inc and Skycone. They quickly called for all hands on deck. Fire departments in the area came flooding in. Over 15 departments from 4 counties, Hardin, Grundy, Butler, and Franklin.

"In a small town water supplies are a challenge" Ackley Fire Chief, Tim Eichmeier said, " That's why we have all these departments here. Bring water, shuttling water in."

"Hardin county is extremely fortunate to have the emergency services that we have." said Joan Frazier an Ackley EMS. "We were fortunate that no one was in the building but in a large fire like this taking care of our firefighters is our biggest priority"

Union Fire Chief, Troy Wilson said, "Nobody got hurt. That's the main thing. Everybody gets to go home safe"

No one was in the building when the fire started and no firefighters got injured. Chief Eichmeier has put out a call for a fire investigator coming to determine the cause of the fire.
