Pellet Plant Fire 

Fire Chief Scott Bragdon says he expects Corinth Wood Pellets Manufacturing to remain closed for several days as a result of the Tuesday morning blaze.

No injuries were reported. The fire began when flames from an exterior burner were sucked into the building by a fan.

The plant opened just over a year ago to produce pellets used in stoves for heating. It was touted at the time as the nation’s largest plant of its kind.
