Tarboro Plant Hopes To Reopen Wednesday After Weekend Fire

Posted March 4, 2001 6:00 a.m. EST

— It could be Wednesday before workers at a Tarboro plant get back on the job.

The roof at the Glenoit Corporation was still smoldering on Monday, two days after a fire raged through a quarter of the building.

Firefighters say the sprinkler system did a poor job keeping the fire from spreading through the factory.

There is no word yet on what caused the fire.
