Sawmill Fire

Fire broke out at Godfrey Lumber Yard in Statesville, NC, Thursday night. Local firefighters reported a large fire upon arriving at the scene, and say that several county fire departments were called in to assist with the blaze.
The Sheriff’s Office says the fire reignited early Friday morning.
It was an approximately 100-by-150-foot building which burned. The building is used to create logs for log homes, and it was filled with equipment as well as lumber and sawdust.
After the fire sprang back up Friday, heavy equipment was brought in to remove the siding from the building to extinguish any remaining hot spots. Crews used a backhoe to tear down the wall. The building and its contents were totalled in the fire.
