Fire at Mersen USA Loading Dock

UPDATE: A problem with a truck’s electrical system caused it to catch fire on the loading dock of Mersen USA in St. Marys at just after noon on Monday.

State police fire marshal Greg Agosti says the tractor-trailer was parked at the loading dock when the fire broke out in the engine compartment of the truck tractor and extended into the trailer. The fire continued through the trailer and caused moderate damage to the outside of the building, and slight damage to the inside. Altogether, damage is estimated at $350,000.

No one was hurt.
