Chatham County wood mill facility catches fire

Posted March 24, 2010 6:45 a.m. EDT

— Crews put out a fire at Uniboard Moncure, a wood mill facility at 985 Corinth Road, at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Chatham County investigators said sawdust caught fire in equipment inside the new part of the plant. The sprinkler system worked, but crews still had to put out the flames.

No one was hurt. A similar fire happened in a different part of the plant earlier this year, according to fire officials.

There was no word on how much damage was caused.
