Fire Damages Paper Plant

Posted September 5, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— There's still no word on what caused an overnight fire inside a Weyerhaeuser plant in Chatham County.

The site in Moncure has two plants, both of which manufacture wood products. One of those facilities broke out in flame.

The fire was contained and extinguished by employees, prior to the arrival of fire and rescue crews.

The plant is on Corinth Road, just off old US-1.

No one was reported hurt.
