Snyder Township, PA – Part of Watt Lumber Company in Snyder Township, Jefferson County was destroyed in a fire late Monday morning.
The fire seems to have started near a building with a debarking machine where employees had been welding.
By the time the workers noticed the flames, the fire had grown so large that they never they couldn’t extinguish it by themselves.
Although the first building was a complete loss, another building on site is in better condition.
There were no injuries.
It took 10 fire companies to put out the fire near Brockway yesterday, partially because it was a large fire but also for the safety of the fire crews since it was so hot.
The fire marshal will be investigating the exact cause.
