Marion, IL (KFVS) - Fire Sends firefighters scrambling from a number of departments across the county.
Crews from Marion, Herrin, Lake of Egypt, and Carterville rushed to the Williamson County airport to battle a fire inside the main hanger.
Airport crews were able to get the planes out in time before the fire spread to the inside of the building .
The Williamson County Fire Chief tells Heartland News the blaze started in a trash can outside the hanger then moved up into the insulation on the interior walls.
The chief also tells us this fire could have been much worse if the airport's crews hadn't removed the aircraft from the hanger as quickly as they did.
