At 8 p.m. the Ohio Country 911 Emergency Service received a message about a large fire. The emergency team arrived on the scene and saw the building engulfed in intense flames.
Lou Vargo, director of the Wheeling-Ohio County Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, noticed that one of the tanker trucks caught fire while cleaning with chemicals.
