OLIVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- A fire impacted at least three different businesses in Ottawa County early Wednesday morning.
Fire officials tell us that the morning has been a "slow battle" in fighting the fire that started around 5 a.m.
The fire started at Trin Polymer on Barry Street just off US-31, and it required the response of several fire departments as smoke wafted across US-31, affecting visibility. The smoke plume could be seen in Holland to James Street and south.
When crews arrived, they immediately started calling for additional help, and spent the next few hours getting the flames and heavy smoke under control.
The building houses several businesses: Trin Polymer, Holland Pallets, and Magnum Lifts. There is very little left of the structure.
Employees had evacuated the building while crews arrived. Two firefighters were taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion and smoke exposure.
The Olive Township fire chief said that there have been traces of cyanide detected in the smoke.
