It was an un-scheduled morning break for about 200 Jeld Wen workers in Bend this morning when a fire suddenly broke out in a dust collecting bin. It started shortly after 8:30 and drivers on the parkway and people at nearby businesses could see the smoke and flames. Bend Deputy Fire Marshal T.J. Johannsen says crews were able to isolate and extinguish the fire pretty quickly: "On arrival they did see smoke coming from the dust collection area, but they were able to enter the unit and get it out quite quickly." Johannsen didn't anticipate any violations in connection to the fire. She says all of the safety equipment was working and that dust particle fires are tough to prevent.   One longtime employee at Jeld Wen says it was only the second fire in that building in 30 years.
