Multiple fire departments tackle Elnora factory fire


ELNORA, Ind. — An Elnora factory that dates back to the World War II era is a total loss following a fire Tuesday morning.

Workers at Basiloid Products Corp. reported the structure fire shortly before 11 a.m. Christmas Eve. No one was injured.

Multiple fire departments were called in to tackle the blaze, and smoke could still be seen billowing out of the building around 1 p.m.

The State Fire Marshal has been called in to investigate the cause.

According to the company website, Basiloid founder Lloyd Hobson was the first to develop a “Lift-A-Pliance” lift truck attachment more than 40 years ago. The attachment is used in major companies around the world.
