Drawer manufacturer suffers major destructive fire

leave a comment »

A large fire broke out the morning of April 4 inside CCF Industries headquarters in Washington Township, Pa.
All employees were inside of the building when the fire began, however none of them received injuries according to an article in Triblive.

Although the cause of the fire is still officially undetermined, CCF industries had about 200 gallons of chemicals including acetone and wood-finisher on site, officials said. Witnesses reported hearing explosions according to an article on WTAE’s online website.

“Preliminarily, it appears some type of product was being prepared to be sprayed,” said Bob Baustert, Washington Township fire captain. “An employee [must have] turned on switches to a dust blower, and a spark ignited.”

A firefighter suffered a knee injury while fighting the blaze, but no other injuries were reported. Firefighters managed to keep the flames from damaging a nearby school and wooded area behind the plant.

After the fire was subdued, only the front wall and parts of side walls remained standing according reports.
