HASTINGS, MI (WKZO AM/FM) – Firefighters are battling a massive fire at an old manufacturing building in Barry County.
It broke out around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday at a building near the intersection of Mill and Hanover Streets in Hastings.
Officials with the Freeport Fire Department tell WOOD-TV that there are no reports of injuries at this time and they do not believe anyone was inside the building.
