Crews extinguish small fire at mulch plant

Posted: Updated:

Crews responded and extinguished a small fire at an East Texas mulch plant Saturday night.

Smith County officials tell us that the fire was at a mulching plant near the intersection of County Road 164 and FM 2493 Saturday night. Smith County Fire Marshall Jim Seaton says that the fire was a pile of mulch that had caught fire, and that there was no damage to the building.

Crews from Flint/Gresham and Noonday responded to the scene and were able to extinguish the flames.

Jim Seaton added that when tree limbs are mulched up, they give off a lot of heat, and that could be what started the fire, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Nobody was injured in this fire.
