VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - Crews were on the scene of a factory fire on Tuesday afternoon in Vincennes.
It started at around 2:30 at Packaging Corporation of America on East St. Clair Street.
Fire officials say the blaze started in the compactor room of the plant.
When firefighters responded, the factory was full of smoke, which caused them to have a hard time to determine the size of the fire.
Crews were able to contain the fire to two compactors, along with the cardboard material inside of them.
Officials say damage costs could be in the tens of thousands of dollars.
The cause of the fire was ruled accidental.
