UPDATE: Fire damages Moorhead container plant
Firefighters responded at about 9 a.m. to a report of a fire at Consolidated Container at 1802 2nd Ave. N.
The plant makes plastic drink containers, among other things.
An employee of the business said workers heard a fire alarm and smelled smoke Friday morning and exited the building.
There appeared to be no injuries.
Firefighters had the fire knocked down by 9:30 a.m., but were still putting out hotspots.
Doeden said fire officials had an idea of what started the blaze, but he said he couldn’t confirm a cause, as the investigation had just started.
He said the workshop area of the plant suffered the most fire and smoke damage.
