ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WSAU) -- The Friday fire at Domtar’s Rothschild facility was contained to a dust collection unit.

Rothschild firefighters spent about three hours putting out the blaze, which started around 4:20 a.m. The fire started when some wood got caught in a giant shredder, causing the machine to create heat and sparks. The sparks were pulled into the dust collector, causing the fire.
