RIEGELWOOD, N.C. -- Officials say an electrical problem is to blame for a fire Sunday at a Columbus County paper plant.
The fire broke out around noon at the International Paper Armour Mill plant in Riegelwood.
Fire officials say one of the fans in the silo shorted out and caught the saw dust on fire. No one was injured.
Firefighters say they get sent out to the plant at least several times a year.
