Investigators probing Delta plant fire

GREENVILLE — The state fire marshal’s office will join the investigation into a fire in a building at a herbicide plant in Greenville.

WABG-TV reports that the fire broke out about 6 p.m. yesterday at the Platte Chemical Co. after what authorities say was a small explosion.

A nearby neighborhood was evacuated for a short time while Greenville firefighters put out the blaze. There were no reported injuries.

Platte Chemical produces insecticides, herbicides and fungicides for agriculture use.

Riverside Volunteer Fire Department Chief Billy Schultz says the fire was put out in about 30 minutes.
