CAMILLA, GA (WALB) - A dangerous equipment malfunction at Georgia's largest Ethanol Plant shut down production for at least a week.
The First United Ethanol Plant, or FUEL, shut down Tuesday night after an accident on the site.
A valve leaked and created pressure build up in one of the pipes. This caused the joint to separate and a significant steam blow-off. They're undergoing repairs right now.
Seven people were working when the equipment burst, luckily no one was hurt. They're hoping to open again next Tuesday.
The plant just began operation in late 2008, so a week of no production is bit of a hit financially. Feedback
