Fire destroys local business

WHITEWATER, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Investigators are trying to figure out what started a fire that destroyed a local business.

The call came in around 6 p.m. Tuesday that a welding shop was engulfed in flames. It was in the 1700 block of Whitewater Creek Road in Whitewater.

Authorities said someone was inside at the time, but they were able to get out okay.

Crews said tanker trucks had to be brought in to put the fire out because there was no water supply nearby.

Lands End, Grand Junction and Central Orchard Mesa fire departments all responded.
