Tuesday afternoon, engineers were assessing whether the adhesives plant was still structurally sound, despite the extensive damage, Mills said. Investigators were also checking the asbestos levels, he said.
The DHM fire is one of three business fires currently under investigation in Calhoun, but none are related.
“Bad things happen in threes,” Mills said.
On Sept. 9, a fire was reported at Clean Sweep Georgia, located on Nance Road, and it re-ignited five days later, Mills said. On Monday, one worker was injured in an explosion at the Mohawk Industries on Clarence King Parkway.
Channel 2's Kristen Holloway at the scene learned that 10 people were inside the DHM Adhesives when there was a small explosion around 1 a.m.
