“It could have been a major fire but it turned out to be not that bad” that’s what Alexander County Fire Marshall Russell Greene said this morning following an early morning fire call.
Around 12:20 am, units from Stony Point, Hiddenite, Taylorsville, and Wittenburg were dispatched to a Daddy Pete’s Plant Pleasers off Smith Farm Road in Stony Point. Greene says a machine that dries manure caught fire. The fire was quickly contained and there was very little damage to the building. The machine is part of the process that turns the manure into pellets for commercial use.
Alexander County EMS and Rescue also responded to the scene but there were no injuries.
