NEW YORK Law enforcement
officials are investigating a fire at the former RG Steel LLC
facility in Mingo Junction, Ohio.
The "suspicious nature" of a
fire, which started at 5 p.m. Sept. 14, led local fire
officials to call police and state fire marshals, Mingo
Junction police chief Steve Maguschak told AMM.
That investigation is ongoing
and there are no suspects at this time, Maguschak said, noting
that the facility had been broken into numerous times prior to
the fire and that the new owner has hired security at the
Frontier Industrial Corp., the demolition company that
bought the Mingo Junction steelmaking facility out of
bankruptcy protection for $20 million in September, did not
respond to requests for comment.
