A factory employee sustained injuries in a recent fire that broke out in the workplace in Menasha area, a March 27 article of Post-Crescent reported.

According to reports, at around 10:30 p.m. on March 26, a fire broke out at SCA Tissue on 190 Third Street. Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue shift commander, Kevin Kloehn, stated that the fire initially erupted from a machine. Plant employees who attempted to displace the fire were ordered to leave the area as smoke levels were already too high when emergency services arrived. Responding crews transported an unidentified plant employee to a hospital due to injuries caused by smoke inhalation. It took fire crews about thirty minutes to contain the fire and the burnt facility was ventilated for over an hour. Kloehn stated that the estimated damage to the building was about $5,000.
