Fire breaks out at Resolute mill in Tennessee

CALHOUN, Tenn. (From news reports) -- A small fire broke out at Resolute Forest Products' mill in Calhoun, Tennessee Jan. 13, authorities say.

The Bradley County Fire Department assisted the Calhoun Fire Department in putting out the fire, along with multiple other departments.

Seth Kursman, the Vice President of Corporate Communications, Sustainability and Government Affairs at Resolute Forest Products, says the fire started in part of the building's power distribution system.

He says employees reported the fire just before 3 a.m.

He added that there were no injuries, but that power outages happened across the site.

Kursman says the outages are under assessment.

The Resolute Forest Products mill was once known as Bowater, until the successor company took over in early 2013.

The company made over 350 layoffs just before Christmas back in 2021, when it suspended its pulp and paper operations.
