Spark Starts Campbell Co. Materials Fire


Campbell Co., VA - A spark started a fire at a Campbell County plant Thursday morning.

Crews were called to the scene at the Gerdau plant, formally known as Cycle Systems, off of Lawyers Road around 4:45 a.m.

Fire Marshal Randall Johnson says the auto recycling factory sees multiple fires every year because of the plastic in dashboards and foam in car seats.

He says a spark near those materials started the small blaze.

A few firefighters were treated for minor injuries after debris flew in their eyes.

No one else was hurt. The damage was minimal.
