The Auburn Fire Rescue Department was called to Kadant Sollutions at 35 Sword St. When firefighters arrived, they found a small electrical fire. The fire was quickly extinguished, and there was little damage to the business.
The nature of the fire did fill the 75,000 sq. ft. building with smoke, so the AFRD called for the District 7 ventilation truck which is based with the Sutton Fire Department.
The truck, basically a gigantic fan mounted on back of a truck, can generate ventilation in the 225 MPH range, effectively removing smoke from buildings in cases like this.
