Buncombe County Fire
A firefighter suffered a minor injury during a fire in Buncombe County early Tuesday morning. News 13 has learned an abandoned meat packing plant at 96 New Leicester Highway caught fire around 12:45 a.m. When crews arrived, the fire was already fully involved. Even though crews fought it as a defensive burn, meaning they would not go inside the building, one firefighter fell in a hole outside the building. He was taken to Mission Hospital and treated for non-serious injuries. We have a crew on the scene and will update you with any new information.
