Multiple fire crews braved the cold and wind to battle an industrial fire in Oskaloosa.

Around 11 a.m. Sunday, the Oskaloosa Fire Department arrived on scene to find the International Ingredients Corporation property fully engulfed.

Neighboring cities’ fire departments also arrived to assist.

Oskaloosa Fire Captain Daniel Hoy says their goal was to keep the main tower from falling.

Two excavators dug through the roof tin which destroyed one of the buildings.

The fire is now contained to the property.

Hoy told KTVO it’s been hard to get more water on scene as the property is a distance from the city.

No injuries have been reported.

The cause of the fire is undetermined.
