ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. — Fire departments from multiple different townships spent hours trying to put out a massive fire in Elkhart County.

There was a total of 10 fire departments, and around 100 firefighters on the scene at the fire’s peak, said WNDU

At first, the Concord Township Fire Department was called just after 6 p.m. on Monday to Recycled New Pallets. Once they arrived they immediately had to call for assistance. 

Around 11 p.m. crews were beginning to leave, and the smoke was dying down. 

No one was seriously hurt, but four firefighters were taken to a local hospital for minor injuries.

Concord Township Fire Chief Richard Rochford told WNDU that firefighters were prepared to be there all night, until the building was cold.
