Industrial Fire at Nippon Dynawave Packaging Mill in Longview Fueled by Woodchip Piles

Crews estimated Wednesday they would continue to battle Tuesday night’s large commercial fire at the Industrial Way paper mill complex throughout the day in Longview, Washington.

Wood chip piles were fueling the blaze at Nippon Dynawave Packaging at 1701 Industrial Way as of Wednesday morning near the entrance on the Longview side of the Lewis and Clark Bridge and Weyerhaeuser’s gate 4 near Oregon and Industrial ways.

A large plume of smoke could still be seen Wednesday afternoon.

No injuries were reported and officials are investigating the cause of the fire.

Cowlitz 911 was notified of the fire at about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday, according to the emergency response app PulsePoint.

Longview Fire Marshall Jon Dunaway said this is the largest fire he has seen in his four years in the position, but could not estimate the size. He said eight apparatuses were on site and up to 45 fire personnel were at the scene at one point Tuesday night.
