Fire discovered at Hanover warehouse

Posted: Updated:

Fire crews spent the morning on the scene of a two-alarm fire at a warehouse in Hanover.

Fire officials were called to the building on Black Rock Road in Penn Township around 3 a.m. Friday. 

We're told the warehouse used to be the Hanover Potato products building. It is now leased out to a variety of businesses.

At first, crews reported there was a lot of smoke in the building. They spent time searching the structure for the source and eventually did discover a fire in the basement portion of the warehouse, which is leased by a book company.

One firefighter was taken to the hospital with a minor shoulder injury.

We're told the fire went to two alarms because of the size of the building. A fire marshal will investigate, but fire officials said it's believed the blaze was accidental in nature.

As of 5 a.m., fire crews were beginning to clean up the scene.
