Numerous fire departments remain on the scene at Building 6 and a shelter-in-place order has been issued for an area within a two-mile radius of Appliance Park. are on the scene of a massive blaze at General Electric’ s Appliance Park.

Authorities expanded the original half-mile radius area shortly after noon but reduced it back down to a half-mile due to changing weather conditions. Shelter-in-place means residents are recommended to go inside, close doors and windows, turn off air conditioning or heating systems, and turn on the radio or TV for more information.

The blaze consumed the building and it appears to be a total loss. All employees are accounted for and safe. Several other buildings at the park were empty because employees were off for Good Friday.

GE issued the following statement on the fire and how the facility will proceed in the short-term:

The fire at GE Appliance Park has been contained. There were no injuries, however building six – a non-production building which warehouses production parts and contains offices for several hundred employees – has extensive damage. Firefighters remain at the scene.

Our first priority today has been to keep people safe and get the blaze under control. We want to thank fire officials and emergency responders for their outstanding service in that regard. We feel very fortunate that due to Good Friday being a holiday for employees that there were limited personnel working in Appliance Park today.

We now are shifting our focus to resuming operations.
