UPDATE: Friday, June 17, 2011

Crews remain on scene as the TreatCo fire continues to burn.

The building has no sprinkler system; which fire investigators say is a contributing factor to its longevity.

Structural engineers have been called in to determine if the warehouse is sound enough to send firefighters into the burning portion of the building.

The fire started more than two weeks ago.

Fire crews continue to monitor the Treat Co. warehouse after fires continue to flare up.

Firefighters were called out to 21st and Broadway for a third time early Sunday morning when the fire rekindled. Crews have been monitoring the build after it caught fire Thursday night.

They say conditions inside the building are forcing crews to battle the blaze from the outside, making it difficult to get the fire under control, and completely out.

Fire has destroyed the first floor of the building. The cause of the fire has not yet been released.

Crews will continue to monitor the building through Sunday night, and Monday morning.
