Factory near Marshall catches fire

MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) - A fire at an East Texas factory sent workers running for safety this morning. Firefighters were called to Mastercraft Cabinet on highway 59, north of Marshall.

Robin Shackleford tells us, "you could see flame coming up and lots of billowing smoke mostly blowing back to the south.....the whole thing was just fire and heat and blocking visibility to the road."

The enclosed warehouse contained the fire and heat into a compressed area.

Mastercraft employs 150 people and turns out 900 cabinets a day.

We were told that the shipping area, is going to be a complete loss.  No word on how many employees may be affected by the fire.

Mastercraft will continue operating, while the damage is assessed. The cause is being investigated and no injuries were reported.
