Fire Burns At Leprino Foods Warehouse In Greeley

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Firefighters say a fire within a wall at a Leprino Foods warehouse in Greeley has caused an estimated $50,000 in damage.

Firefighters said the blaze Thursday morning was believed to be an accident and might have been caused by workers repairing the roof.

Fire crews had to cut the metal wall and roof to get to burning insulation material. They then used a thermal imaging camera to check for hot spots and remaining flames.

No injuries were reported.
