Albany - An Albany company is cleaning up the huge mess left behind from a warehouse fire. Soggy paper products are pilled up behind the back warehouse at Flint River Services on Oakridge Drive.
The warehouse caught fire Thursday morning. A construction crew, using a grinder, sparked a fire which quickly spread.
Firefighters finally put out the hot spots from the two-alarm fire last night. Security guards monitored 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. 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. Griffin says it could have been a lot worse, the adjacent warehouse housed peanut oil. Luckily, firefighters stopped the flames from reaching it.
