Fire strikes at Henson’s Inc. again

Published 6:39 pm Monday, March 22, 2010

It was deja vue for Hensons, Inc. last Thursday as three tractor trailers caught fire just after closing time.
An investigation is still ongoing for a fire that destroyed a building and trucks last July 4.
Thursdays fire brought with it explosions that could be heard for a couple of miles. The explosions were caused from tires on the tractor trailers.
Hensons, Inc. is located at 105 Ridge Road, in Tryon, near the state line.
The trailers caught fire last Thursday just after 5 p.m. All the employees had left for the day, so no one was on the property at the time, nor were there any injuries reported.
The Tryon, Columbus and Landrum Fire Departments responded to extinguish the fires along with the Tryon Police Department, Polk County Sheriffs Office and the Polk County Emergency Medical Services.
The July 4, 2009 fire was deemed to be arson and the Polk County Sheriffs Office continues its investigation. Thursdays fire is still unknown and is also being investigated.
