Lufkin firefighters respond to small blaze at Abitibi

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - A month after extinguishing an old fire at the Abitibi plant, Lufkin firefighters were at the scene again Friday afternoon, for a much smaller blaze.

Battalion Chief Bobby Hobbs said the fire started like the October blaze, as a demolition crew was using a cutting device to demolish a building. Sparks started a small fire and Hobbs said firefighters were able to extinguish it within moments of arriving at the scene.

"This one was much smaller and more accessible that other fire so we got it out quick," Hobbs said.
