ORLEANS — One person was injured after a fire broke out at the Ethan Allen Mill in Orleans on Wednesday.

Orleans Fire Chief E.J. Rowell told a reporter from WCAX that when firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke coming from a 55-gallon drum.

A worker at the mill was transported to the hospital to be treated for burns to the head and face, as well as smoke inhalation injuries.

Rowell also told reporters that dust inside the drum was probably ignited by static electricity.
