The fire at Lavern Heideman and Sons lumber yard in Pembroke was likely caused by equipment failure. That’s according to Pembroke Fire Chief Dan Herback, who says it’s pretty much case closed. He says it’s just a matter of planning to ensure something like this doesn’t happen again.
Herback says nobody was hurt as a result of the fire. Residents were without power for the overnight hours of January 3rd as the blaze knocked out the main power lines coming into the city.
