Firefighters were called to the East Wisconsin Avenue location around 7 a.m., the newspaper’s account said. Personnel were able to douse the flames in about 45 minutes, preventing damage to the structure.
The dust collector was destroyed in the fire, a fire official told the Freeman. An earlier report said a blaze broke out in duct work connected to the plant’s wood chipping system on June 20.
