Oil Fire in Iowa

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A motor oil distributor’s warehouse caught fire early Thursday, sending flames 30 feet into the air but injuring no employees.

The 11,250-square-foot Stern Oil Co. building was engulfed in flames. It housed cases of motor oil, bulk oil and air filters, said company President Gillas Stern. Two firefighters were slightly injured, officials said.

“It’s the first time in 31 years of being in business that this has happened,” Stern said. “It’s unfortunate, but we’re happy that all the employees – no one was hurt.”
