The Racine Fire Department responded at 12:40 a.m. Friday to a report of a structure fire at a boarded-up warehouse in the 1400 block of Junction Avenue. Battling the blaze took place primarily from the outer perimeter because of questions about the structure’s stability and the flammability of the contents, which included party supplies like tents, bouncy houses, chairs, and tables.
