Suspicious Warehouse Fire Causes Parts of Highway 12 to Close
GLEED, Wash. - A Yakima warehouse catches fire and officials are calling it suspicious. The fire appears to have started on the outside of the building.
It happened at 21 Eschbach Road, at the Fossum Fruit Warehouse, just off Highway 12 in Gleed. Fire officials responded to the fire just before 2:00 Thursday morning, and it took them 45 minutes to contain.
Heavy smoke from the fire caused parts of Highway 12 to be closed down. Around 50 firefighters and ten different engines were called in to fight the fire. There was some damage to the inside of the warehouse, but firefighters were able to save the building.
