Monday fire damages aluminum products business in Yankton

  • 0

YANKTON | Fire prompted the evacuation of an aluminum products business in Yankton, but no one was hurt.

Deputy Fire Chief Larry Nickles tells the Daily Press & Dakotan ( ) that the Monday afternoon fire started in a paint room at Sapa Extrusions. The cause was not immediately determined.

A damage estimate was not immediately available. Company officials were working late Monday to clean up and get the business operating again.

Nickles says the fire presents a unique problem for the department — paint that got on some firefighting gear and equipment will be difficult to remove. He says some items might not be salvageable.
