Two fires, two days. The old ConAgra building has kept Huron firefighters busy this week, when workers using blowtorches set fire twice to the former industrial building at the mouth of the Huron River.

Sandusky contractor Ed Burdue and Co. is doing salvage work on three storage tanks at the property.

Cooking oil or lard has pooled in small, concave area at the bottom of the tanks, which likely contributed to the cause of both fires.

No one was hurt in either of the blazes.

Dont yea think that maybe you should use something to prevent the fires in the bottom , I mean like sand or even water , its not going to take that much

I am sure that with the costs involved to send the Fire Department there twice, that there will be some procedures set in place. With this kind of demo work going on, these things happen, but a little more thought, will reduce the problems.

Wait until they implode the big buildings.  It will be the bigger than the River Fest fireworks ever were.  They have to plan for it.  They will probably do it early on a Sunday morning.  They will have to close US 6 through Huron, and more than likely have to evacuate the homes along Tiffin Ave and Berlin Road north of Cleveland Road.  Video of it will probably go nationwide.
