The fire began at about 10:30 a.m. and crews from Dayton and Rockingham County were on the scene in a matter of minutes. While they were able to get the fire under control fairly quickly, firefighters were still on the scene as of 12:30 this afternoon.
Several of the firefighters on scene had been up for as much as 36 hours straight, having come straight from Wednesday night’s blaze at RR Donnelly just outside the city. Fire crews remained on the scene of that fire through the night to douse any hotspots and to investigate its cause.
