  • Follow Latest News

Machinery at the Kimberly-Clark plant in Beech Island caught fire today, but only caused minimal damage, fire officials say.

The fire was reported around 10:30 a.m. and arriving firefighters found smoke filling the second and third floors of the plant on Old Jackson Highway, said Beech Island Fire Chief Justin Craven.

Craven said the Kimberly-Clark fire brigade had already knocked down a majority of the fire before first responders arrived. A spokeswoman for Kimberly-Clark said employees contained the fire in the operating area of a warehouse and that the fire department was called as a precaution.

No injuries were reported.

K-C has a very good fire brigade. They do a good job of jumping on things as quick as they can.
