Crews have turned over the scene of a destructive blaze back to a Moorhead company, just hours after suddenly returning there to fight a flare up. Firefighters were called back to Pactiv around 6:30.

Workers scooping out packed paper from the plant noticed debris re-igniting. They expected this to happen. Dilworth brought its 2,000 gallon tanker to dump water on the flare-up and stop the problem from spreading. There were no major issues. Damage estimates are in the millions and the structure of the building could be a total loss.
