Fire Contained At FiberTech

(MITCHELL) – The Marion Township and Mitchell Fire Departments were summoned to Fibertech early Saturday morning around 4:05 a.m.

According to Marion Township Fire Chief Paul Gillespie, “A fire in the wall was contained to one wall by maintenance crews at Fibertech. This was a small fire with smoke or water damage.”

The fire may have started by a grinding operation that took place earlier in the evening. The fire had been burning for some time, going unnoticed. Firefighters cut and removed the bottom of the wall to get to the problem area.

AMR Ambulance and Lawrence County Police Department also assisted at the scene.

No injuries were reported.
