Conveyor system causes fire
The Lincoln Parish Fire Department responded to one fire late Tuesday evening at the Roseburg Forest Products facility in Simsboro.
Jim Hilton, spokesman for the LPFD, said the particle board plant received no major damage during the blaze, and that fires, like the one Tuesday night, happen from time to time at the facility.
“Every now and then the conveyor system that moves wood chips and dust has a fire,” he said. “It always just takes a couple of hours to cool down.”
