A large industrial fire was reported this afternoon in Bentonville, Arknsas. Heavy black smoke cold be seen for miles away coming from United Industries. Multiple emergency crews responded almost immediately closing off roads making sure the area was safe for first reponders. The building is intact and looks like it is able to be saved, only inside structure damage. Only one of the four vertical tanks is left standing the other three collapsed due to the fire.
An investigation is planned to figure out the cause of the fire starting tomorrow. Local schools in the area near the plant lost power.
One person was injuried and treated they are expected to be released soon no other injures were reported at this time.
