Local

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) – Firefighters rushed to put out a fire at International Paper, 2502 E US Hwy 50, in Garden City.

KSN’s Huntet Funk spoke to the fire chief who says employees were evacuated. He said three of them were evaluated by EMS for smoke inhalation.

The fire chief told KSN the fire started in a shredder in the building and embers may have traveled up to the “Cyclone” on the roof.

Water was sprayed through the piping between the two machines.  

The firefighters checked all areas of the building. They say the wind made firefighting difficult.
