'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

No injuries were reported at a Butler County industrial plant fire Friday morning.

Emergency dispatchers said the fire at the Sonnenborn Corp. plant along Route 268 in Fairview was first reported around 3 a.m., but was brought under control quickly.

Anita Orzcso, human resources director for the plant, wasn't immediately available to provide additional information.

The 250-acre plant, built in 1885, manufactures white oils, petrolatums and microcrystalline waxes, according to the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection.
