Firefighters Return to Fire at Coors Distribution Plant

Fire crews were called back to the Coors Distribution for a second time overnight.

The call went out just before one o'clock Thursday morning. The flare up was put out minutes later.

It took firefighters several hours to extinguish the original fire Wednesday afternoon. It started because someone was burning trash in a dumpster there. High winds blew the burning embers into a stack of pallets, and when those ignited the fire spread to a nearby shed.

It took 49 volunteer firefighters from seven departments to extinguish the blaze.
