Crews respond to fire at Missoula Textiles

The Missoula Fire Department responded to a structure fire at Missoula Textiles downtown early Tuesday morning.

Around 6:30 a.m., crews were dispatched to 111 E. Spruce St. after a caller reported visible smoke in the Missoula Textiles building, according to a press release. Firefighters found “a light haze of smoke and strong chemical smell inside the building.” 

After the building was evacuated, crews assessed the roof and did an interior search of the building, where heavy smoke was coming from a dirty laundry sorting area. 

“A fire was found at one of the sorting stations; rotating racks were dropping laundry, thus adding additional fuel to the area,” the release said.

Responding crews quickly extinguished the fire and no injuries were reported. Fire Marshal Dax Fraser and Assistant Fire Marshal Adam Sebastian are investigating the cause of the fire.
