The Louisville Ladder Distribution Warehouse on North Hale Avenue in Peoria avoided major damage after crews put out a fire in its storage yard.
Firefighters were called to the scene at 3 p..m. on reports of the fire.
Crews were able to knock down the fire within 10 minutes
Because the business is far from the road, water had to be shuttled in from a hydrant to the engine attacking the fire.
While some product was lost in the storage yard, there was no damage to the building or any product inside the building.
No one was injured.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
