Firefighters from all over Aiken County battled a fire at the Clearwater Finishing Plant on Tuesday night.
The call came into dispatch at 8:56 p.m. that the building was ablaze. The plant was vacant and in the process of being torn down. Firefighters did not have a cause for the fire late Tuesday.
The old textile finishing plant had three buildings still standing, and two of them had caught fire by 11 p.m. Bath Fire Chief Sean Johnson said firefighters were protecting the surrounding buildings and had no plans to evacuate neighboring properties.
