Appleton firefighters respond to blaze at Appvion Monday

by

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A fire at an Appleton business is causing crews to deal with frigid temperatures while putting out the flames.

The call went out Monday night to Appvion, formerly known as Appleton Papers, after workers were dismantling a machine when it caught fire.

No one was hurt.

The extremely cold weather made things difficult for firefighters, as they worked about two hours at the scene. One fire truck was temporarily taken out of service because its pump froze after about 10 minutes.

Crews also say their hoses were filled with slush and ice when they tried to drain them.
