PSP, Company Still Investigating Petrowax Fire

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused Sunday’s fire at the International Wax plant in Farmers Valley.

The fire at the plant – still commonly referred to as Petrowax – was reported at 11:50 Sunday morning. Initial reports indicate that the fire burned wax in a filter room, but state police fire marshals have not confirmed that yet.

International Group spokeswoman Heather Meikle says one worker suffered minor injuries and is not hospitalized.
