Fire at Amalgamated Sugar in Twin Falls

TWIN FALLS — Firefighters worked through the night Saturday and continued to work Sunday to extinguish a fire at Amalgamated Sugar.

Rock Creek fire was the last on the scene at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, but an excavator and two loaders worked through the day to remove the sugar factory warehouse’s contents to help completely extinguish the fire.

Twin Falls fire crews are standing by to put out any remaining fires found and continue to ventilate the building’s roof to get remaining smoke out, a Facebook post by the Twin Falls Fire Department said.

The department estimated the fire would be totally out Sunday afternoon.
