OLD TOWN, Maine (From news reports) -- Two firefighters were injured Saturday morning after a fire at the ND Paper mill in Old Town, according to firefighters.
The Old Town Fire Department said crews were called to the mill around 9:00 a.m. for a fire in an equipment area.
The two firefighters who were hurt had minor injuries, according to first responders.
Firefighters said it took them two hours to put out the fire, but the flames weren't very large and were mostly contained in a wall.
According to ND Paper, the owner of the mill, the fire started in an "unused" area of the mill and the building itself suffered no structural damage.
"Safe operation of the pulp mill is ND Paper's top priority," Brian Boland with ND paper said in a press release. "As such, we are conducting a thorough investigation and the mill will be taken down for 36 to 48 hours for inspections, root cause analysis, and cleanup work."
The same mill had another small fire last month.
The investigation into what started the fire is ongoing.
