Fire damages sawdust silo of Tiffin furniture maker

TIFFIN A fire Monday night caused extensive damage to a sawdust silo at a ready-to-assemble furniture manufacturing plant on the city s north side, authorities said.

Firefighters were called to Ameriwood Industries just before 11 p.m. Monday after a spark from a machine at the factory or from the dust collection system apparently ignited the fire, which was under control by about 1:30 a.m. yesterday, Tiffin Fire Chief Bill Ennis said.

There were no injuries.

The chief had no damage estimate, but said the dust collection system was damaged extensively.
