Chippewa County (WQOW) - A fire at a pallet
company caused some serious damage Monday night.
It happened Monday night
around 9:00 p.m. at Walter Brothers Manufacturing.
The Cornell Fire Chief,
Denny Klass, said when crews arrived on scene, the sawmill part of the business
was entirely engulfed. That fire then spread to neighboring woods and the DNR
had to be called in to assist.
Crews said because of
the material inside the building the flames spread quickly. According to Klass,
crews had a hard time keeping the fire out of a silo that collected dust.
There's still no word on
what started the fire or a damage estimate.
