Firefighters from the Racine Fire Department are on scene at fire located in the back of a storefront at 1658 Main St. at about 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3.

The intersection at Main and High streets has been blocked off to traffic as four fire trucks are on scene.

The fire appeared to be out.

A witness told the Racine County Eye that it might be a dumpster fire, which has been on fire in the past.

We’ll update the story when we get more details.
