Date and Time:
Location: Butler Pike Findley Township Mercer County
06/04/12 Fire broke out at Rodgers Sandblasting on Butler Pike (Route 258) in Mercer County around nine o’clock this morning. Fire Chief William Finley said the garage was fully involved when their crews arrived. Firemen had to wait for power to be turned off because of wires that had fallen. Several explosions were heard and possibly could be attributed to drums of sand exploding, according to Finley. There were also various types of chemicals in the building. Employee Jesse Wasser said that an outlet was sparking and set fire to some nearby flammable materials. Finley had not talked to anyone yet and could not confirm the source of the fire.
