Ingham County Factory Fire Forces Evacuation

Posted: Updated:

A Tuesday night fire and hazardous material situation at a Leslie metal-plating plant forced some people living nearby to evacuate their homes.

Thick, black smoke filled the skies as a fire burned at ISC Plating in Ingham County. 

After testing for dangerous chemicals, residents were allowed to return home and close their windows. 

Crews are still out at the scene today to monitor the debris while environmental clean-up teams will begin removing the mess.

Some walls and part of the roof collapsed. Police say what's left of the building will be destroyed.
