Greenville Fire Deparment...
Structure Fire at Fram
February 13, 2012 

At 2304 hours on Monday February 13, The City of Greenville Fire Department was dispatched to a fire alarm activation at the Fram Group facility at 851 Jackson St.  

Fire crews found that a vent stack from a cure oven on a paint line had been on fire.  As personnel were completing extinguishment of this fire, plant personnel notified them that another machine was on fire.  This machine was left operating when plant personnel evacuated the building for the fire alarm activation from the stack fire. 

Paper media used in the process of manufacturing automobile oil filters had ignited and quickly spread throughout a conveyor system and adjacent materials.   Firefighters brought the fire under control quickly after deploying hose lines; however, the large building filled with smoke that necessitated an extensive ventilation process that took over an hour.  Damage is estimated to be at least $60,000.
