Firefighters respond to fire in the wall at Green Bay Packaging

Green Bay firefighters responding to a fire in a wall at Green Bay Packaging on Wednesday afternoon. 

Green Bay Metro Fire Department units arrived and found Green Bay Packaging personnel trying to find and put out a fire in an exterior wall. A spark from maintenance work caught fire on the insulation in the wall.

GBMFD said crews had to dismantle walls to put out the fire. A "working still" was called due to size and scope of work done.

In total, 5 Engines, 2 Ladders, 3 Med units, 2 chiefs and 2 Fire Marshals were called to the incident.

The cost of the damage is estimated to be around $5,000. No one was hurt.
