A fire has caused an estimated $10,000 worth of damage to a warehouse and compactor.

The Galesburg Fire Department responded to a structure fire on Enterprise Dr. Tuesday, November 22 at 7:28 p.m. Initially dispatched as a general fire alarm, the response included all three stations and 11 personnel on duty. Upon arrival, crews saw smoke coming from a large self-contained trash compactor and the building. Battalion Chief Donald Brackett established command, and the Central Station crew entered the warehouse with an attack line. Capt. Jeff Maher and his crew used a thermal imaging camera to maneuver through the warehouse and found the fire inside the compactor. The sprinkler system had activated and prohibited the fire from spreading throughout the rest of the structure, with minimal damage to an interior wall. 

An emergency callback was used to provide emergency coverage for the city. No injuries were reported. Preliminary damage estimates are at $10,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation by Galesburg Fire Department Investigators.
