On Sunday, crews will decide if any more monitoring is needed.

The fire at Chemtool started the morning of Monday, June 14 and sent smoke plumes for miles.

Firefighters from more than 160 departs came to fight the fire. U.S. Fire Pump, who was brought in by Chemtool, has since been on the scene working to put the fire out.

Clean-up of debris from the fire started earlier this week by officials.
