Dehumidifier catches fire at SNF Manufacturing in Riceboro

RICEBORO, GA (WTOC) - There was a small fire Monday at an SNF Holding Company manufacturing building in Riceboro.

The company spokesman told WTOC a portable dehumidifier caught fire shortly before 5 p.m. He told WTOC that no chemicals were involved.

We do know right now that it was caused by an electrical fault.

"The fire was extinguished by the SNF Fire Brigade with assistance from the Riceboro Volunteer Fire Department. There were no injuries. There was no impact on manufacturing," said SNF General Counsel Chris Gannon.

Gannon tells us SNF will spend the next few days investigating what exactly caused the fire.
