Crews were dispatched at 9:37 AM to Olympic Panel Wednesday morning for a commercial fire above the main dryer unit. When crews arrived, Olympic Panel employees were working to suppress the fire. Central Mason Fire & EMS crews took over after climbing several walkways to reach the fire and with two hose lines the fire was suppressed. The sprinkler system did activate but the fire was above the reach of the sprinkler suppression system.
Crews from Fire District 11 and Fire District 4 assisted. The fire was controlled quickly. No estimate on damages but will be minimal and they are back in operation.
