IP's Savannah, Georgia, container plant resumes operations after Dec. 10 warehouse fire; no injuries reported, cause is yet to be determined
December 12, 2011
– International Paper's Savannah plant is back in operation after a warehouse fire that burned for several hours.
Savannah Fire spokesman Mark Keller tells the Savannah Morning News (http://bit.ly/vsaRVx) it took more than 30 firefighters several hours to get the blaze under control. He said firefighters described "rolling fire" inside the warehouse and smoke everywhere.
Authorities say the fire was discovered around 3 a.m. Saturday in the warehouse off West Lathrop Avenue near Bay Street. No one was hurt, and the fire didn't spread beyond the warehouse.
International Paper spokeswoman Karen Bogans said the warehouse held used cardboard intended for recycling.
Keller says the cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
