LINCOLN – Officials say a machinery malfunction is to blame for a fire that severely damaged a Lincoln wood mill.
Crews were called to LMJ Enterprises around 4-30 Tuesday. Officials say when they arrived on scene the machinery was fully engulfed in flames.
The owner of the business estimates the damage to be around half a million dollars. No one was injured, and the machinery is covered by insurance.
It’s unclear how soon the equipment can be replaced. The mill will be closed indefinitely.
