Mancelona Fire Crews Dealt with ‘Explosions’ in Structure Fire

Fire crews in Antrim County spent six hours putting out a fire on Sunday.

It happened at Fahl Forest Products, formerly known as Burt Moeke Hardwoods, on Valley Road in Mancelona.

The fire department responded around 9:30 A.M. to a fire in one of the buildings on the property.

The Mancelona Fire Chief says it housed a diesel truck and oxygen tanks, which blew up as the fire spread in the building.

Because of that crews had to fight flames from outside the building until after 3:30 P.M.

The Mancelona Fire Chief says they’re still investigating to determine an exact cause.
