Recent tire plant fire has village on high alert


Thomasboro– A recent fire that destroyed J and R used tire service in Hoopeston has another village on high alert.


Former Thomasboro Mayor says he believes it is just a matter of time before the same thing happens at the tire recycling plan "Astro Tire Removal." He says it is something the village board has feared for awhile.


However, the owner says his business is safe. The current Thomasboro Mayor is working with the fire chief on putting together an action plan in case of a fire at the tire plant.
