Fire at PCA's Colby, Wisconsin, packaging site on Dec. 23 extinguished with no harm to people, building or manufacturing facility; corrugated food packaging containers in warehouse sustained smoke damage

LOS ANGELES , December 24, 2013 () – Fire crews responded to a fire at the Packaging Corporation of America (PCA) facility in Colby, Wisconsin, on Monday, WSAW-TV reported on Dec. 23.

The Colby Fire Department is investigating the cause of the fire, which was contained to a finished-products warehouse before it was promptly extinguished.

PCA’s Colby location manufactures packaging for an array of food products and for doors and windows. Because the contents of the warehouse were corrugated boxes for food packaging, the smoke rendered the materials unsuitable for their intended use.

The building and manufacturing facility itself was unharmed and there were no injuries.
