Firefighter hospitalized after Sioux City business catches fire


A firefighter was taken to the hospital, and a building damaged, after a fire broke out at Sioux City business.

At around four o'clock, officials at Jim Hawk Trucking reported smoke coming from the building in the 5200 block of South Lewis Boulevard.

Fire crews knocked down the flames in about 20 minutes. But, one firefighter was transported to Mercy Medical Center for heat exhaustion. Authorities say an initial investigation of the cause points to sparks tossed from a welder.

There's extensive damage to the building in the area of the fire. Crews were still on-scene monitoring "hot spots."
