      Spontaneous combustion blamed for Sawyer fire

      Firefighters were called out to a ReNewafuel storage facility at Sawyer Tuesday afternoon.

      Officials say the raw material feedstock for the ReNewafuel plant spontaneously combusted. It happened at the Bahrman storage facility. The fire was quickly extinguished. Due to the building having cement sides and a metal roof, there wasn't much damage. Officials say they've had problems with smoke in the past. The woody biomass has a tendency to get hot at the bottom of the storage facility and spontaneously combust.
