Gastonia Mill Fire Has Costly Consequences


by Ashley Armstrong



GASTONIA, N.C.-- Firefighters kept an eye on a smoldering warehouse fire in Gastonia yesterday.

Three workers were inside the Wix warehouse when it burst into flames on Saturday. There is still no official cause, but the fire chief told us it could have been the transformers. Investigators say paper air filters stored inside the building fanned the flames.

The warehouse was recently renovated from an old textile mill. According to a Gastonia police report, the total loss from the fire is 4 million dollars.
