Fire broke out in a warehouse containing more than 1,000 tons of charcoal briquettes, authorities said.

Sunday's early morning blaze at the Kingsford Co. plant left the briquettes "white hot and ready for cooking," said Fire Chief Gerald Derr."It's just like a big barbecue. It was just like looking into a giant grill."

More than 70 firefighters battled the four-alarm blaze.
