Minor fire at Weyerhaeuser mill


The Weyerhaeuser Co. mill in Raymond had a fire scare early Monday morning, but the fire was contained to a machine in the planer mill.

Raymond Fire was on scene at about 7 a.m. and quickly contained a small fire in a chipping machine, which had apparently overheated. Mill workers helped by pouring water on the machine to begin to contain the fire.

Six firefighters responded, and some remained on scene about 45 minutes clearing smoke and putting out small hot spots.
