UPDATE: Fire out at metal coating company in Milwaukee

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A fire fueled by exploding propane tanks is out at a Milwaukee industrial company.

Deputy Fire Chief Terry Lintonen says everyone is OK at Acme Galvanizing on the city's south side where a two-alarm fire burned earlier Monday morning.

Billowing black smoke could be seen for miles as the fire burned and destroyed a secondary building on the property. Firefighters were able to keep the blaze from igniting the main building.

Lintonen says a hazardous materials team will be monitoring the air quality in the neighborhood because of the chemicals at the plant.

Acme Galvanizing specializes in metal coatings.
