Sawmill Fires

Kansas City, MI, firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at an old lumber company Thursday evening. The fire broke out in the 1300 block of East 31st Street in an area filled with old pallets. Firefighters said they called for an additional alarm because the pallets had the potential of becoming a much bigger fire, but crews got it under control fairly quickly. There were no reports of injuries.
The company was still in business, but no one was at the site when the fire started.
Investigators have not said what caused it.
Elsewhere, firefighters worked quickly to keep a fire in an 18-wheeler in Hearne, TX, lumber yard from spreading to a nearby building.
The fire is believed to have broken out Tuesday morning at the yard on 6th Street.
The flames were put out before they could spread to the building the semi was parked near. No word on a cause of the fire.
