Pallet Company Closed Down in Montgomery
A Montgomery wood pallet company has been closed down for the second time in a year.
The fire happened around 3:30 this morning at Southeastern Pallets on Washington Ferry Road just off the Birmingham Highway.
No injuries were reported but dozens of firefighters responded.
Public Safety Director Chris Murphy says the company also had a fire last year and was also shut down: "that involved several code violations and we've been working with them to get them back up to code and that kind of thing, unfortunately--it's still under investigation but it doesn't appear to be arson--but it does appear to involve code violations again, so we've shut them down until we can get them back up to code."
No immediate comment from the company about the fire or the forced closing.
