fire crews were hard at work this morning. that's after a massive warehouse fire in terre haute. crews were called around 8 sunday night. news 10's jordan kudisch joins us live this morning from the warehouse. she has more on what the scene looks like now. this warehouse is located near maple avenue. the flames are finally out, but you can still smell the smoke in the air. (adlib scene around me). take a look at the video on your screen. this is some of the footage our crews got yesterday.. look at large those flames are. dispatch told us neighbors thought there were multiple fires due to the large flames. we were able to get on the property last night as this happened. terre haute arson investigator norm loudermilk escorted our crew onto the property. this property is the same warehouse that caught fire earlier this year. you may remember it as the old fibre box plant. loudermilk says the cause of the fire is under investigation. the good news is the building was empty, and there are no known injuries at this time. because the building was empty, loudermilk says the cause is likely arson. the fire is still under investigation at this point. we'll continue to follow this developing story and bring any updates as we learn more. reporting live in terre haute, jk, news 10.
