Eleven tanker trucks representing 10 lake area fire districts are called out as part of a statewide mutual aid response to a massive blaze Wednesday morning in Osage County.

Fire crews responded to the Hilke’s Ice plant in Freeburg which has been declared as a total loss.

Responding lake area districts were called in as part of the local Tanker Task Force responsible for the shuttling of water from the Gasconade River some ten miles from the fire scene on Dogwood Street.

No injuries have been reported to this point and a social media post by the ice plant indicates that they may be down but are not out and continue to operate as normal.
