Firefighters battle Hastings business blaze

The Hastings Fire Department is battling a fire that has overtaken the BG & S Transmission building in Hastings.

Smoke from the blaze at 128 N Lexington Avenue can be seen for miles.

Our NTV reporter on scene heard at least three minor explosions in the course of five minutes and saw fire completely overtake the first floor.
