MENOMINEE, Mich. (WFRV) – An industrial fire in Menominee had numerous fire departments respond, as crews work to put out the flames.
According to the Stephenson Fire Department, there is a fire at an industrial facility in Menominee. Multiple departments are on the scene.
The fire was at Resolute Forest Products.
The Stephenson Fire Department says it is using its 65-foot aerial boom to battle the fire. Stephenson is about 25 minutes north of Menominee.
The following statement was provided to Local 5 from Resolute Forest Products:
A fire started last night in the warehouse that Resolute rents from KK Integrated Logistics on the site of our Menominee recycled pulp mill. Local fire departments have been on-site all night, and the fire is under control, although smoke is still billowing due to smoldering in the warehouse. Everyone is all right, and there were no injuries. An excavator was used to remove some of the exterior building panels so the fire truck with a boom could be used to spray further into the building. We continue to work with emergency response to contain the fire, understand what happened and prevent it from happening again. We acted quickly, and would like to reassure local stakeholders that the safety of the community and our employees is our top priority.Resolute Forest Products
