Three fires ignite in 36 hours at paper mill

April 29, 2009
MIDDLETOWN, OH — Excessive dust buildup at Wausau Paper mill is the reason why fire ignited on three separate occasions within 36 hours, according to the Dayton Daily News.
Company officials are calling the incidents unrelated and a complete coincidence, the story stated.
The reports began Sunday at 10:21 p.m. when firefighters were called to extinguish a basement fire; they were called back Monday at 4:04 p.m. to extinguish a paper machine fire; and the third call was placed Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. after a paper dryer sparked dust, the story noted.
A spokesperson for Wausau Paper said the company is not very interested in having the fire department come to the mill again.
Neither of the blazes required a full evacuation of the plant and there are no reported damages or injuries associated with the incidents, the story added.
