SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) Fire officials say a massive fire at the Port of Savannah in Georgia is contained but could take a while to burn out.
Savannah Fire and Emergency Services spokesman Mark Keller says the fire fueled by 5,600 tons of rubber is contained, but there's no telling how long it will take to burn it out.
He says firefighters were using industrial pumps to suck up river water and blast it through water cannons at the fire.
Crews will continue soaking into the night and Sunday if necessary.
A towering column of black smoke could be seen from miles away.
The fire was burning inside a warehouse covering 226,000 square feet at the port's Ocean Terminal just west of downtown Savannah. All port workers were accounted for and unharmed.
