Excerpts from the MorrisHerald-news.com:

The Morris Fire Protection and Ambulance District was assisted by neighboring departments in battling a fire on Tuesday evening at Crown Concepts Corporation at 7080 Lisbon Road north of Morris.

Morris Fire chief Tracey Steffes said when units arrived on the scene fire was already showing through the 60 foot by 60 foot paint booth.

As of 5:25 p.m. firefighters were still battling the fire with the new tower ladder the district purchased recently.

“This truck has been called to two fires in five days, if we can hold the fire to the building it’s in, which I believe we will, it will have paid for itself already just in the savings to this business,” Steffes said.

Steffes estimates the fire caused $260,000 worth of damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
