A fire spewed acrid smoke into the sky as a furniture warehouse burned Monday afternoon in Bedford Indiana.
The Bedford Police Department posted to ask that people stay away from the site of the blaze and the toxic black smoke. Roads nearby, 5th Street and Belback Road were still closed late Monday afternoon, and media were kept far from a wooded area, where smoke still billowed. It appeared as if whatever had been behind the woodline had burned, and a Bedford Fire Department ladder truck continued to pour a steady stream of water onto the smoldering ruins.
Meanwhile, some firefighters were taking a break after fighting the fire, and members of the United States Forest Service, dressed in woodland fire fighting gear, were inspecting the woods. A crew from the forest service walked east on 5th Street, and then into the woods.
Earlier a reader told the Bloomingtonian smoke could be seen from the Harrodsburg exit on Indiana 37.
Here are a few photos from the scene late Monday afternoon:
