Makeshift race shop catches fire, everything inside destroyed


PRINCETON, Ind (WEHT) Authorities are investigating a pole barn fire in Princeton. This is on CR 100 West near the high school.

The call came in around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday.

We’re told the structure was a makeshift race shop. Princeton Fire Chief Mike Pflug says there were some obstacles with putting out the fire.

“They had a lot of race cars, magnesium metals, and things like that in there that made it more difficult to fight,” Pflug said.

Officials say everything inside the garage portion is lost. No injuries were reported.
