Crews respond to fire at sawmill

Posted: Updated:

WNEM TV5 has confirmed that firefighters are on the scene of a fire at Maeder Brothers Sawmill in Isabella County.

Firefighters say that the flames broke out at around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the business in Weidman.

Multiple fire departments responded to the fire, which burned the building to the ground.

Crews say the sawdust, wood, and oils kept refueling the fire. That forced firefighters to fight the blaze from the outside.

An operations manager says there was millions of dollars worth of machinery inside the building.
