Wisconsin printing plant fire kills 1

July 13, 2002 -A fire fueled by tons of paper and magazines consumed a 10-story building on the grounds of a large printing plant in southeastern Wisconsin, causing one death, authorities said.

About 330 workers were evacuated Friday night before the fire broke out at about 9:30 p.m., said Fond du Lac Battalion Chief Jim Feiereisen. Police said the dead person had not been identified by late Saturday morning.

Workers on break at the Quad/Graphics printing facility in Lomira, Wisconsin, reported smoke to managers, who ordered the evacuation, Feiereisen said.

A large portion of the building collapsed around the time the fire broke out, however it was not clear if the fire caused the collapse. About 15 employees were working in that area, Feiereisen said.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Department said most of the fire was put out two hours after the initial call. However, live video showed the fire continue almost unabated as it consumed a storage building, causing its sides to partially collapse around 12:45 a.m.

The area where the fire broke out was a new part of the printing plant that had only been in operation for a month, Feiereisen said. The 10-story building was used for paper storage and contained 25,000 palettes of paper with 1 ton of paper on each palette, he said.

The printing plant houses an apartment complex and a full-service medical clinic for its 2,000-plus employees.
Quad/Graphics says its Lomira plant is the largest, single printing facility in the Western hemisphere.

Several area fire departments helped fight the blaze in Lomira, about 50 miles northwest of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Feiereisen said.

The cause of the fire was unknown, although Feiereisen said there were unconfirmed reports of an explosion before it broke out.
