A grinder causing a spark led to the fire at a factory in Carthage last week.
That's what 7 News is reporting about the blaze that quickly hit a machine at Carthage Specialty Paperboard. The spark from the grinder reportedly caught some paper dust on fire, which led to the flames.
Fire crews made quick work of the situation and officials told 7 that there was not much damage, all contained to the area near the machine.
Five employees, however, were treated for smoke inhalation at the time.
