On Saturday, June 23, at approximately 4:15 p.m., a fire in a wood drying unit was reported at LJR Lumber Products, located at 1377 Old Nunez Road. A plume of heavy, black smoke was visible from a distance by responding firefighters. The fire was contained within the dryer and associated duct work but required thousands of gallons of water to bring it under control. Two engines from Swainsboro and one each from Adrian, Nunez, Norristown, and Oak Park spent more than 2.5 hours on scene. Water used was drafted from a pond on the property to supply the numerous hose lines.
