Early Morning Fire Destroys USDA Building in Prosser

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, Wash. - Benton County Fire Investigators are working to figure out what started a fire at a USDA building in Prosser early Wednesday morning.

Around 3:30 AM, Prosser Firefighters went to the research facility and found the plant grinding building in flames.

Benton PUD workers went to the scene to remove the power lines overhead, and firefighters contained the fire shortly after.

Administrators say the grinding machines destroyed in the blaze were the only ones at the USDA site.

Three offices in the building suffered smoke and water damage, but no one was hurt in the fire.
