Fire at Weston plant causes $1 M in damages


WESTON (WAOW) - A fire that started in an industrial sander at a wood products company caused about $1 million in damages, the company president said.

The fire at From The Forest, which makes hardwood flooring, broke out about noon Thursday, President Tryggvi Magnusson said.

The fire was isolated to a large sander, he said.

 A spark inside the sander caused dust to explode, igniting the fire, Magnusson said.

No one was hurt.
