A fire in foam apple trays at Dolco Packaging was confined from spreading by an exterior sprinkler system and a quick response by firefighters. The foam trays were stacked on pallets in an outdoor storage yard and the burning material put up a significant amount of black smoke when it was first reported to RiverCom about 7:20pm. The facility is located at 1121 S. Columbia Street in Wenatchee.
The Wenatchee World reports crews from Chelan Fire District #1 and Douglas Fire District #2 arrived and quickly knocked down the fire. A 2nd alarm was sent out requesting more firefighters but was quickly cancelled when the fire was brought under control according to Chelan County Battalion Chief Cary Neu. He reported some smoke damage to the interior of the warehouse but the majority of the damage was outside. The cause of the fire was not available.
