Old Georgia Pacific plywood mill catches fire in south Arkansas


 A fire at an old Crossett, AR plywood mill continued to smolder Sunday. 

The fire began Saturday morning.

Georgia-Pacific originally operated the mill, but it shut down in 2011. 

The fire was so intense, Highway 82 was closed and nearby businesses were evacuated. 

The company says the fire started while a contractor was doing demolition work Saturday morning.
