Fire Hits Fla. Newspaper's Pressroom



Workers at The Palm Beach Post had to be evacuated Monday afternoon because of a fire.

Firefighters were called to a fire on the second floor of the newspaper's headquarters shortly before 1:30 p.m.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but West Palm Beach Fire Chief Phil Webb said workers were removing some of the old machinery from the pressroom that had to be cut apart prior to removal.

A portion of Dixie Highway near Belvedere Road was closed while firefighters were at the scene.

No injuries were reported.
