DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - Danville fire officials are investigating a weekend fire at a fiberboard plant.

The fire occurred Saturday afternoon at Blue Ridge Fiberboard in a staging area containing fiberboard stacked on pallets. No injuries were reported.

Danville Fire Department Capt. Barry Neal tells The Danville Register & Bee (https://bit.ly/SZ4sj7 ) that the cause of the fire hasn’t been determined.

It was the second fire at the plant in about two weeks.

On May 30, a fire damaged finished goods outside the plant. The fire department said the fire was caused by spontaneous combustion due to the tightly packed product and the heat required to cure it.
