Peanut warehouse fire is nearly extinguished

DONALSONVILLE, GA (WALB) - Fire officials in Donalsonville said the peanut warehouse fire that ignited four days ago is almost out.

Chief Dean King confirmed the fire is 90 percent contained, but they still have some hot spots flaring up.

Crews got back to work early Sunday morning at 7. Peanuts are still being moved out of the warehouse, most of which are no good.

King said they'd gotten a lot of support from area fire departments, which allowed good progress.

The walls of the warehouse have been removed and they plan to eventually tear down the entire building.
