Posted: Friday, Jul 29th, 2011

A scheduled maintenance outage at Georgia-Pacific’s Toledo mill turned into something more serious on Wednesday, with one employee going to Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport for observation after a small fire was discovered in the #3 paper machine.

Mill spokesman Tom Picciano said the fire was discovered around 6:15 p.m., as employees were bringing the machine online after maintenance. “There was a small fire in the dryer section of the machine,” Picciano said.
