    Default Pinckneyville Fire

    An early morning fire destroyed a Pinckneyville manufacturing facility today. The blaze was reported about 2:30 this morning at the Heartland Packaging building in this Perry County seat. Several departments battled the blaze, but it was to no avail. Strong winds and the presence of manufacturing products that included plastics made the fire difficult to control. The company made plastic bags. IL Route 154 was closed going West out of Pinckneyville for several hours while fire crews fought the fire. More news later as details become available.
    I'm glad your Northereners didn't beat me to this one.

    Thanks for the info Jack. I had not heard anything about it yet.
    Must have been quite a fire with all the plastic products.

    Don't think Coulterville was there. Pinckneyville, Nashville, DuQuoin and Tamaroa as far as I know. I don't think there was much firefighting, more protecting the exposures.
