Large fire breaks out at mulch company in Mitchell, shuts down nearby roads
MITCHELL, Ind.– Indiana State Police say portions of State Road 37 and State Road 60 are closed in Mitchell due to reduced visibility from a large fire.
Eight fire departments are on the scene at Fibertech, which is a mulch company. The fire started around 11:40 a.m.
The smoke is so thick, crews say there is zero visibility. After-school programs in the area had to be canceled.
No injuries have been reported. The windy weather is making the fire difficult to contain.
