Fire no longer burning at fertilizer facility in Eltopia area
ELTOPIA, Wash. - A fertilizer fire is no longer burning in the Eltopia area.
A Facebook update from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office said the McGregor Fertilizer Company experienced a fertilizer fire at their facility Wednesday morning.
Authorities said the fire was quickly contained and put out.
No one has been hurt in this fire, according to reports.
Authorities previously encouraged people in the area between Deweber and Fircrest on Eltopia W. as well as between Fir and Garfield on Glade Road to leave their homes until the fire was completely out as smoke from the fertilizer could cause breathing issues. They now say it is safe to return home.
