Multiple fire crews working to contain gin fire in Petersburg

Posted: Updated:
PETERSBURG, Texas -

Multiple fire crews are working to contain a fire at the Petersburg Co-Op Gin.

Between 20 and 30 modules caught fire. Fire fighters have set up trenches and defensive perimeters to ensure the flames don't catch and spread to nearby homes. 

When the bales catch they typically burn for long periods of time. 

No reports on injuries or an exact cause of what started the fire. 

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
