A pallet plant fire Wednesday afternoon in northwestern Ohio drew a massive mutual aid response of 17 nearby fire departments.
At about 4 p.m., fire broke out at Keegan Enterprises in Sandusky County. The fire started at the rear of the company’s property about 30 minutes after the last people had left the business.
Wood and plastic pellets fueled the flames, creating thick smoke rising into the sky. Firefighters worked nearly six hours to get the fire under control, keeping the fire from spreading to nearby mobile homes.
The fire was not completely extinguished until Monday morning, the Fremont News-Messenger reports.
One firefighter suffered a minor back injury. No other casualties were reported.
