HERKIMER, N.Y. -- Another fire broke out in the town of Herkimer Wednesday morning at Altrux on Route 28.
The Route 28 fire had crews scrambling to get it under control following another fire in the village at Ole VI.
Smoke could be seen billowing from the Altrux building for hours.
Altrux is a heavy equipment repair shop in the town of Herkimer.
Firefighters had to break away from the Ole VI fire, to fight this one.
The fact that the building is a steel structure made it challenging for crews, as they had difficulties opening it up to vent.
There were no injuries, and the investigation into the cause is ongoing.
