Sawdust ignites at pallet company

ARGOS – Sunday afternoon brought firefighters from four departments to a large blaze at North Central Pallets, Inc., located at 13990 SR 10 between Argos and Culver. These efforts continued Monday morning with another dispatch to the site.

The fire affected a huge sawdust pile there and was thought to be started by instantaneous combustion, very similar to a fire or explosion in a grain elevator.

To fight this fire, tanker trucks from four area fire departments responded to the emergency call. Units responding were from Argos, Culver, Plymouth and Tippecanoe.
