GORHAM, N.H. --
Firefighters controlled a dust fire that pumped smoke through the Fraser Paper Factory in Gorham.
The fire started near a paper machine Sunday morning, but the flames died out before firefighters arrived.
Firefighters stayed to control the remaining hot spots in stifling heat.
"It's an extremely hot environment; heat beyond belief in there. There are four stories over the ground floor. We go in, and it averaged 10 to 20 degrees of temperature difference every floor you go up," Gorham fire Capt. Dana Horn said.
The plant continued to operate during the fire, and firefighters said the damage was minimal.
