A fire at a large manufacturing facility in Middlefield Township required assistance from numerous area departments.
According to a post on the Middlefield Fire Facebook page, the department and crews from surrounding communities were dispatched to Station Road in Middlefield Township for a fire March 9 shortly after 8 p.m. Crews arrived to find smoke in the area and quickly determined the source to be a large manufacturing facility — Mouldings One, 13851 Station Road — a custom wood moulding manufacturer.
According to the department, crews entered the building to find the seat of the fire and encountered poor visibility and heat conditions. Crews were withdrawn from the building, and a defensive strategy declared. Shortly after, fire broke through the roof of the building.
Additional departments were summoned. According to a Twitter post by the Chardon Fire Department, they sent a tanker and ladder truck and were one of 22 departments that provided aid due to limited water near the facility.
Crews worked for several hours to bring the fire under control. There were no injuries to civilians or fire personnel, and no other buildings were damaged.
Crews remain on scene as the fire is under investigation by the Middlefield Fire Department, the Geauga County Fire Investigation Unit and the State Fire Marshals Office.
