Eramet Marietta fire extinguished; No injuries reported

MARIETTA — “The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says due to the rapid response of fire departments, the fire at Eramet Marietta was brought under control and was extinguished.

The exact cause of the fire isn’t known, but the fire was put out about an hour after it broke out, shortly after 11:30 this morning.

It broke out in a system installed nearly ten years ago, designed to crush manganese for delivery to Eramet’s customers.

The fire itself was ignited by a conveyor belt, and for about a half hour, thick smoke could be seen coming from the unit were the crusher is located.”
