CAPTAIN RYAN COLLINS OF SIOUX CITY FIRE RESCUE SAYS SMOKE WAS STREAMING FROM THE PREVIOUSLY BURNED SECTION OF THE VEGETABLE OIL PROCESSING PLANT WHEN FIREFIGHTERS ARRIVED AROUND 7PM:

OC……….LOOKS LIKE RIGHT NOW. :17

COLLINS SAYS THE DAMAGE WAS CONFINED TO THAT PREVIOUSLY BURNED PART OF THE STRUCTURE FROM THE FIRST FIRES AT THE BEGINNING OF MAY.

A LOT OF FOAM WAS USED AGAIN TO PUT OUT THE FIRE FROM THE 185TH AIR NATIONAL GUARD’S FIRE UNIT:

OC…..THAT FIRE OUT. :21

COLLINS SAYS THE CAUSE OF THE ORIGINAL FIRE BACK ON MAY 2ND HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED YET:
