A silo at the Roseburg-Flakeboard plant in Simsboro received extensive damages in a dust fire on Monday, said Jim Hilton, spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Fire Department.

The plant, located at 486 Duraflake Road, is owned by Roseburg Forest Products. A representative from their offices was unable to be reached for comment before press time.
Hilton said approximately 20 parish firefighters — along with several from Ruston, Grambling and Bienville — were at the scene from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. getting the fire under control.
