Beatrice Firefighters Sent to Laundromat Flare-up

BEATRICE -Beatrice Firefighters were sent to a laundromat Sunday afternoon, following a small fire in a dryer unit.

Captain Jeremy Seggerman says the call came in at 3:47 p.m., sending firefighters to the Soap Opera Laundromat at 1623 Court.

Seggerman said lint build-up in a large dryer caught fire.   There was no damage to the building, but firefighters cleared some light smoke from the back part of the business.  Firefighters took the back of the dryer apart, to get rid of the build-up.
