EVANSVILLE, Indiana (AP) — Firefighters in southwest Indiana battled a large blaze Monday that has left a warehouse complex in Evansville in ruins and created a plume of smoke visible for miles.

Evansville Fire Department spokesman Mike Larson said “every truck in town” was at the scene of the campfire, which broke out just before 5 a.m. CDT. along Morton Avenue in Evansville.

The smoke rising from the fire was so thick and intense that it was clearly visible on weather radar around the city, Evansville Courier & Press reported.

Larson said the Evansville Fire Department was trying to determine how many buildings were damaged by the fire in the city, which is about 170 miles southwest of Indianapolis.

Video footage of the scene showed flames still rising from several collapsed buildings across a large area Monday morning, producing plumes of smoke.

Authorities closed the Lloyd Expressway near the Evansville’s Division Street and US 41 exits and urged motorists to avoid the area. Indiana firefighters battle fire at warehouse complex
