INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Overnight crews battled a large fire in a storage facility for Just Add Water Boats on Sherman Drive near Raymond Street.

Multiple people in the area called 911 around midnight to report the fire.

Firefighters went on the defensive, as most of the walls were quickly collapsing. Our Eyewitness News crew was kept away from the facility for safety concerns, including the weather and unpleasant odors.

With so much water being sprayed on the building, ground conditions were slick.

A person associated with Just Add Water told firefighters there were 70 to 75 boats being stored inside.
