Update 2: Fire at Caterpillar Plant in East Peoria Is Out

EAST PEORIA - Update 2:  Multiple fire crews remain on the scene of a fire at Caterpillar building C-C-3 on Tractor Drive in East Peoria. 
Smoke had been seen pouring out of a stack for more than 30 minutes this morning. However, our crews on the scene tell us smoke stopped around 11:40AM, but still  lingers in the area around the facility. 
Just before Noon today, Caterpillar officials told us that this is an empty building that is being torn down.  No one was inside.  We'll have more details later today on WMBD 31 News at 5 & 6.
