Firefighters are still working to finish extinguishing a tornado debris fire on Harshman Road.
“We’re still here mopping up right now,” said Dayton Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Lykins. “Looks like the fire did jump some of the piles, so we’re going to get a ladder here and finish up, get the hot spots.”
“Obviously when you this much product on fire you need copious amounts of water,” Lykins said. “Right now we're working off one hydrant. There are hydrants in this abandoned shopping center and we're working with the water department to get those turned back on.”
He expects the fire to be put out sometime today.
UPDATE @ 7:49 a.m.:
Our crew on the scene of the Harshman Road fire reported that the arson investigator has arrived.
