Arson investigators called in after second fire in two weeks burns warehouse at East Anderson Hardwoods in Eubank, Kentucky

LOS ANGELES , January 2, 2012 () –

Arson investigators have been called in after fire broke out for a second time in two weeks at East Anderson Hardwoods in Eubank, Kentucky.

Fire officials say the fire broke out at about 4 a.m. on Monday, and that when they arrived, a massive warehouse was on fire, according to a report by local station Lex 18.

A fire at the site on Dec. 20 caused damage estimated at US$800,000, and officials say both fires are being treated as suspicious because there is no electricity in the areas where the fires started. Arson investigators have been called to the scene.
 
East Anderson Hardwoods is one of two sawmills owned by Roy Anderson Lumber Co., of Tomkinsville, Kentucky. The company also operates a dry kiln facility in Tompkinsville under the name of Anderson Brothers Hardwoods. The three operations produce more than 45 million board feet (110,000 m3) of hardwood lumber annually, according to the company's website.
