CORINTH, Maine (AP) — Fire officials say a blaze has completely destroyed a Maine plant that makes wood pellet fuel.
Crews from 25 towns helped fight the fire at Corinth Wood Pellet Manufacturing Wednesday night. The fire chief in Corinth was treated for smoke inhalation and later released.
Officials say an overheated piece of equipment caught fire, and the flames quickly spread through the roof of the mill.
Fire crews were still on scene monitoring the building for hot spots Thursday. The mill is considered a total loss.
