SPRINGFIELD, OR -- A small fire that broke out in a scrubber unit of Natron Wood Products on Friday, July 1, caused little damage.

The fire was detected by a passerby who quickly alerted fire authorities by phoning 911. Fire officials told KEZI TV that a cooling pump, designed to send water to the scrubber, had failed.

Natron is part of the Jasper-Natron family of companies. The company makes custom plywood and industrial LVL products.
