Fire destroys Des Moines warehouse

A four-alarm fire has partially collapsed an industrial warehouse on Des Moines's north side.

More than half a dozen area fire departments have been fighting the blaze since about 9 a.m. Saturday at the warehouse, which houses a paint company and two automotive suppliers.

The cause of the fire is unknown, and no injuries have been reported.

Jon Davis, deputy director of emergency management for Polk County, says firefighters are expected to stay on the scene all day.

Davis says the building is a total loss.  Streets and businesses in the blocks surrounding the warehouse have been closed nearby because of possible air chemical contamination, as the building held various paints, oils and solvents.
