The fire alarms rang out early on Tuesday, December 1 at the Neenah Paper Plant in Munising, but thankfully, the alarms were from only smoke.
According to officials at the plant who spoke to Roam Media via telephone, the “fire” was from an upset boiler that created a large amount of smoke. The smoke was enough to trip the fire alarms and invoke the response from local fire departments.
No injuries were reported in the incident, but it was enough to disrupt some computers in the nearby area. That included the ability to use a computer that would allow the plant to turn off the alarms. Many nearby residents were concerned about the extended length of the alarms coming from the plant before information was released.
