The cleanup continues on Wednesday after a fire broke out at a wood processing facility in Zion Crossroads yesterday.
Smoke was seen coming from Chips Inc. around 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
Fire and rescue crews from several counties responded to the scene.
Officials say a giant container of sawdust caught fire. Firefighters could be seen trying to cool down the container so that it didn't burst, which would have created a dangerous explosion of burning sawdust.
Workers inside of the facility made it out safely.
The fire is under investigation.
