Crews from seven area departments were called out to battle the fire that broke out at the Greene Lumber Company in Greene just after 3 a.m. today. According to several reports, the lumber company’s main building was one of three on the property consumed by the fire.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier is reporting that heat from the massive fire cracked windows and melted siding on a home across the street. No injuries have been reported. It’s the second time in a week that fire crews were called to the Greene Lumber Company.
A fire there on July 1st involved an electrical panel. There’s no word on if the two fires are related.
