Firefighters Respond to Storage Tank Fire

craig-fire-rescue-300Craig firefighters responded to a blaze Friday morning at a shipyard just north of Axis Steel. According to firefighters, a cutting torch was being used to scrap an old storage tank. The tank was mostly empty, but a sludge-like substance inside turned out to be flammable and was ignited by the torch. The workers immediately called the fire department, which had the fire out within about 15 minutes. Nobody was hurt in the incident.
