Brownsburg warehouse under construction catches fire Friday afternoon

Emergency crews were called to Ronald Reagan Parkway and Connector Road just before 1 p.m.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. — A warehouse under construction in Brownsburg caught fire Friday.

Emergency crews were called at 12:41 p.m. to Ronald Reagan Parkway and Connector Road early Friday afternoon.

The fire was mainly contained to the construction materials. Officials said so far, there is no evidence this fire was intentionally set or connected to the Walmart warehouse fire Wednesday in Plainfield.

There was initially a report of a possible entrapment with people up on the roof, but the fire department told 13News that is not the case.

There were no hydrants in the area yet, so the fire department brought in additional resources to try and get the flames under control.

The warehouse is a spec building being built for a possible future tenant. The contractor on the property is Scannell Properties.

The facility that caught fire is near the complex being built for Mercury Marine's distribution center.

The Brownsburg Fire Marshal said welders on the roof may have put off embers that landed on stacks of foam insulation that caught on fire.
