Fire Destroys Palm Harbor Plant

By  | 

Two-hundred workers won't be able to go to work today because a four-alarm fire destroyed a mobile-home factory in suburban Fort Worth.

The fire happened Saturday at the Palm Harbor Homes plant. No one was working there at the time. The cause of the fire is unknown.

By the time firefighters arrived, the fire had already done significant damage. A city spokeswoman says fire crews had to pull out of the factory when the roof collapsed.

Firefighters continued to address hot spots yesterday. Officials from the company, which is based in suburban Dallas, could not be reached by telephone for comment.
