Albany-- Soggy paper products are piled up behind the back warehouse at Flint River Services on Oakridge Drive. The warehouse caught fire Thursday morning, when a construction crew using a grinder sparked a fire which quickly spread.

Firefighters finally put out the hot spots from the two-alarm fire Thursday night, and security guards monitor the building over night to make sure the fire didn't start back up.

"With the heavy equipment brought in by Mr. Griffin's company, it helped us a lot as far as getting it done quicker," said AFD Chief James Carswell. "Being able to spread it out and wet it down, the fire went out much quicker," said Fire Chief James Carswell."

Flint River Services owner, Lem Griffin, says they plan to tear down the old building and build a new one. Damage totaled about $750,000.

But Griffin says its could have been a lot worse, the adjacent warehouse housed flammable peanut oil. Luckily, firefighters stopped the flames from reaching it.
