Mill operations at Nippon Dynawave Packaging were not affected by a small Friday morning fire in a conveyor belt.
The company called Longview Fire Department and Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue around 5:15 a.m. Friday to report a fire in a belt line at the Turning Tower, according to the company.
Firefighters arrived about six minutes later, but "it was more of a check" than a fire-fighting operation, said Blake Tomlinson, battalion chief with Longview Fire.
“There was a small fire in a conveyor belt, and Longview Fire assisted Nippon Dynawave with ... getting up there to the conveyor belt and making sure the fire was out," Tomlinson said.
Crews left about 30 minutes later, he said. Mill operations were not affected by the incident, said Brian Wood, spokesman for Nippon Dynawave.
"It was mostly just a clean-up job," Tomlinson said.
