Yesterday the Jonesboro Fire Department responded to a fire alarm at the Nestle Plant. We are thankful that injuries were minor and that our firefighters on the scene were able to contain the fire. Nestle is a vital part of the Jonesboro family and our thoughts and prayers are with their hardworking employees and families affected by this incident. Mayor Harold Copenhaver and Chief Kevin Miller want to thank the Nestle crew for their prompt response to get workers out of harm's way, which also allowed our first responders to quickly focus on containment.
We stand ready to assist Nestle with their needs during the rebuilding process and look forward to seeing this pillar of our community back in full operation soon.
