Stubborn fire caused headaches
A smoldering fire at Dakota Wood Grinding has been a headache for employees at the facility as well as several fire departments since late December. But owner John Guillemette said the flames are finally out and the company is returning to business as normal.
Dakota Wood Grinding chips wood to be used as fuel at the District Energy Power Plant in St. Paul. One of the generators at the plant broke down for seven months and the wood chips started to pile up.
