Update – Sunday Morning Fire at Roseburg Forest Products [AUDIO]
Crews from Missoula Rural Fire, Missoula City Fire department and the Frenchtown Fire Department combined to knock down a fire at the Roseburg Forest Products plant on Razer Drive.
Assistant Fire Chief Brent Christofferson says the 9-1-1 call came in early Sunday morning, and found a fire in the air handling system in te baghouse.
Several engines were dispatched to the scene along with a battalion chief, and the fire was successfully knocked down.
Roseburg Forest Products Mark Allen says the fire started accidentally in an area called the refiners, and that damage to the facility was relatively minor…only about $10,000. He says the facility is back up to 100% capacity after about 24 hours of repairs and clean-up.
