Evacuations were not ordered, but officials said they had people shelter in place since the evacuation route would have brought them closer to the fire.

OEM said EMS officials did check out a firefighter, but it is unknown if it was for a heat or smoke injury.

According to officials, the fire is out, but it is expected to become a hazmat situation because of plastic petroleum materials.
