Turman fire proves difficult

Details about a boiler fire at Turman's Flooring in Galax were unavailable at press time, but the Galax Fire Department and Galax-Grayson EMS responded to an alert at 11:23 a.m. on Wednesday and were still fighting the tenacious blaze late into the afternoon.

Multiple engines were on scene, along with the department's 102-foot ladder truck, to hose the boiler down. While no fire was visible from the ground, smoke was in evidence; firefighters were engaged in a multistage process to extinguish the blaze throughout the hardwood flooring plant in West Galax.
