Procter fire
Incident   Procter fire
According to the Green Bay Metro Fire Department, crews were called 11:55 a.m. for a report of a fire in a paper machine.

Topics: Procter and Gamble plant fire

When they arrived, crews found plant workers trying to contain a fire in one of the machines.

Crews then found moderate to heavy smoke with fire in many locations throughout that machine.

Due to the difficulty of fighting the fire, the call was upgraded to a second alarm level.

Crews then worked with plan workers for several hours to open up the machine and ventilation system to find and put out the rest of the fire.

How the fire exactly started is still being investigated.
