Fire destroys Waynedale trucking business

Heavy fire destroyed a Waynedale trucking business building early Wednesday morning.

Fort Wayne firefighters were called at 1:40 a.m. to a structure fire at Oetting Trucking, 3014 Broadripple.

When the first crews arrived, they found heavy fire in the building and much of the roof had already collapsed, according to a news release.

Crews stopped the fire from spreading to nearby structures and used ladder trucks to put out a majority of the fire.

No one was hurt at the scene and the cause is under investigation. Assistance came from the Fort Wayne Police Department, Northern Indiana Public Service Co., American Electric Power and Three Rivers Ambulance Authority.
