According to Officer John Sherrer with the Vienna Fire Department, a fire caused an unused particle board plant to collapse. The Vienna Fire Department requested aerial assistance from the Cordele and Americus Fire Departments in order to put out the flames.

Sherrer said that the only person at the plant was a security guard who was unharmed.

No one was hurt, and they are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.


Fire crews in Vienna are on the scene of a fire at the old Georgia Pacific plant.

Just after 8 p.m. Thursday night, several 13WMAZ viewers shared pictures from the scene where the plant appears to be engulfed in flames.
