Machine Spark Caused Sawmill Fire

Fire officials say a machine spark caused a fire at a Pike County sawmill Tuesday night.

It happened on Kelly Mountain Road in Sycamore.

Officials say the sparks caught some sawdust on fire and then it spread and burned all of the sawdust on site. It took almost 50 firefighters to put out the blaze.

No one was injured.

Officials say two pieces of equipment were damaged.
