Fire crews were out early Friday morning battling a fire at Van Gorp Corporation in Pella. Firefighters were called out around 4:00 a.m. to the facility at 1410 Washington Street. Multiple crews responded but they were able to get the fire out around 5:30 a.m. Snow did make it difficult for fire crews to get to a hydrant. “I got up, I live west of town, I came directly in to town and came to the scene and saw flames coming through the roof and I knew the truck was on its way, so I prepared a fire hydrant for them. Because as we say now with all the snow we got in the area, we need to keep hydrants clean, and so I had to find one,” said Chief Doug Van Gorkom with the Pella Fire Department.
