Iroquois has sawdust fire


On the afternoon of March 27th, fire broke out at Iroquois Enterprises in the dust collector.

“Crews arrived to find flames coming from the side hatch and from the lower portion of the collector,” reported South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services chief Chris McDonough.

“Iroquois requested Morrisburg to assist and the flames were quickly extinguished. It took,” he continued, “three hours to remove the excess sawdust and ensure there were no other ‘hot spots’ in the collector.”

Owners of the company were “put on notice” and were made “aware of the maintenance that is required and of the fire code regulations surrounding the operation of the facility.”

Iroquois Enterprises manufactures new hardwood or softwood pallets and industrial wood products. The company is located at 32 Dundas Street in Iroquois.
