Yes, around noon 50-60 people were laid off.

Fire at Forest River Plant Near Goshen

Article doesn’t say what was made at this plant. Went pretty fast. Thankful for no injuries.

Well it appears that FR has a major case of arson....

Within 2 hrs of laying off 50-60 employees, a massive fire breaks out at the factory..... The situation is currently under investigation.....

Man oh man......
