BOYCEVILLE — A fire in the drying facility at Big Rivers Resources was quickly contained by local firefighters.

The Boyceville Fire Department was called to the facility along Highway 170, just west of Wheeler the afternoon of Tuesday, January 20th, for the fire. They quickly activated the MABAS fire alarm system that sent many pieces of firefighting equipment to the scene.

The fire was in some duct work on one of the buildings and was quickly extinguished by firefighters using a couple of hose lines. No injuries were reported.
