    Firefighters responded Monday night to a large fire in Hancock County, Illinois.

    Sheriff Scott Bentzinger said crews are on the scene of that large fire just west of Carthage south of the F.S. Fertilizer plant, south of Highway 136.

    He said at least one structure has been destroyed and LP tanks are on fire.

    Sheriff Bentzinger and other authorities ask everyone to avoid that area Monday night, with the danger of burning LP tanks and the risk of explosion.
