• Firefighters work to price damage on Gastonia plant fire


    GASTONIA - Firefighters are trying to determine how much damage a fire caused at a Gastonia plant Sunday morning.

    The fire department said it found smoke billowing from the CBP Resources building on York Highway just before 10 a.m.

    Firefighters went inside and found a large cooker inside had set the duct work on fire overnight.

    “There was a huge cooker that was cooking about 30,000 pounds of raw material. The leftover heat was in the cooker and basically caught fire,” said Chris Stowe with Crowders Mountain Fire and Rescue.

    Firefighters say it took three hours to put the fire out. No one was injured and the plant is still operating.
