Huge fire destroys Bartow County plant

Firefighters were still working at 5:30 a.m. to douse the blaze that broke out after midnight at the Mouldings Unlimited plant on U.S. 411 in White.

Neighbors told Channel 2 Action News they were awakened by large explosions.

"It was shaking my whole house," Amanda Thompson told Channel 2. "All I've been doing is praying. I'm very scared."

There was apparently no one inside the building when the fire began, and no injuries have been reported.

The highway in front of the plant, U.S. 411, remained closed two miles east of I-75 at 6 a.m.

Mouldings Unlimited produces about 250 different architectural wooden mouldings at the 157,000-square-foot facility, according to the company's website.
