Firefighters treated for heat exhaustion after silo fire in Channelview


Officials say four firefighters have been treated for heat exhaustion after a silo fire in Channelview.

The fire started around 9 o'clock last night, and flames could be seen near the top of the seven-story silo burning for several hours.

At one point, firefighters called mayday because it appeared one of the firefighters was lost, but he was found and is said to be okay.

The Fire Marshal's Office says three of the four firefighters who needed treatment were released, while the fourth one is being treated for smoke inhalation at the hospital, and that the cause of the fire was accidental.
