200 People Evacuated in Madill Fire

11-01-06 - A 2-alarm fire forced more than 200 people working at a Madill manufacturing plant to evacuate Wednesday morning.

It happened about 8 AM when crews got called to Elliott Manufacturing north of Madill. That's the company that makes Solitaire mobile homes. Luckily the fire was contained to a dust collector near the saw shop.

Officials are not sure what ignited the fire, but say any spark can set dust on fire. The plant's director said the building suffered minor damage and everyone was allowed to go back to work.
