Multiple fire crews are responding to a fire at Metal X in Waterloo.
Early reports indicate that weather and water supply have been issues that have challenged fire fighting crews, especially with the breeze. Several water tanks and ladder trucks are working non-stop.
Bellowing smoke has even impaired driving on nearby roads and I-69. Drivers should proceed with caution and avoid the area when possible.
This isn’t the first fire at the Metal X plant in Waterloo, located just south of 6 on the east side of I-69.
We will have more information available is it becomes available.
