Mount Vernon in Trion has issued a statement regarding last weekend’s fire in the weaving operation of the mill.
There was no loss of life or serious injury but there was damage to the building and minor damage to the equipment.
The most damage occurred in areas that are no longer utilized and the mill was able to start up operations at 10 o’clock Monday morning at a little more than 50% of capacity.
They will build to 100% over the next week or so.
There may be a delay in some deliveries for a brief period.
