SOLON– Firefighters from Solon, North Liberty, Ely and Iowa City responded Thursday morning to find an industrial condominium on Solon’s south side partially engulfed in flames.
The Solon Fire Department was called to the multiple-unit industrial condo located at 200 Windflower Ln. east of Highway 1 mid-morning Thursday, and the combined efforts of the four departments had contained the blaze by 11 a.m. At that point, the fire had been contained to the exterior walls of the south unit, where the fire apparently started. Additional units were called to the scene near noon, and by 1 p.m. smoke was still billowing from the structure and firefighters were still actively engaged.
The contents of some neighboring units were removed, but heavy fire damage was sustained by over half of the structure. Four units appeared totally destroyed.
No injuries were reported.
