Officials with Stat Incorporated say there are no hazardous materials near the fire in the saw dust pit at the property yesterday morning, on Eli Lane, in Hudson. Stephanie Lewis with Stat Safety and Human Resources says: “The fire did not get out of the saw dust pit which is steel reinforced. It is not near any hazardous materials or buildings on the property and no evacuations have been needed.” The fire was called in by a Stat employee around 10:30 a.m.  Caldwell County Fire Robbie Wilkie says the fire was under control as of 11:15 a.m. Wilkie says the saw dust pit is approximately 8 feet wide, 20 feet long and three feet deep. It contained saw dust used to clean up hazardous spills as well as sand blasting material in cardboard boxes. The only thing burned was the sawdust and the cardboard boxes.
Other fire departments are being called in to relieve the fire fighters on the scene due to the heat of the day.
