Five fire departments battle Weyerhaeuser fire at Martin County plant
It took fire crews from five fire departments nearly five hours to extinguish a fire at the Weyerhaeuser plant in Martin County.
Jamesville Fire Chief Michael Pierce says the fire started around 3:30 in the planer side of the building and made it to the bag house.
He says there was extensive damage, estimating the loss at around $25,000
Nancy Thompson with Weyerhaeuser media relations says that the fire was a minor event and that there were no injuries. She did not have an assessment of damage available.
Pierce says while the investigation is ongoing, but it appears the fire was the result of a mechanical failure.
Crews from Jamesville, Williamston, Bear Grass, Griffins Township and Plymouth all responded.
