Fire Destroys Abandoned Plant

Fire Alpin BrothersThe former Alphin Brothers packaging plant on US 301 south of Dunn burned Tuesday afternoon. The cause of the fire is unknown.

Fire departments from four different counties responded to the scene around 12:30 pm.

The plant had been left abandoned after a tornado went through and destroyed most of it five years ago. Last month the Harnett County commissioners condemned the structure and gave the owners until Aug. 31 to take the building down. Courtesy The Daily Record
