RG Steel fire caused by cutting torches

Posted: Updated:
Investigators say a fire that broke out Wednesday at the former RG Steel plant was caused by cutting torches that made contact with oil covered debris.

Firefighters from Howland and Warren Townships were dispatched to the facility, which is being dismantled for scrap.

Workers were using torches to assist in the demolition process.

No one was injured, and no damage estimate was reported.

Much of the equipment from the former steel plant was auctioned more than a year ago.
