Omaha fire officials say a fire at an Omaha paper company was caused by a wire that sparked and ignited a bale of shredded paper.
Employees at International Paper, 7202 N. 16th Street, were evacuated after the blaze broke out about 11:45 p.m. Sunday. Everyone got out safely.
Battalion Chief Tim McCaw said a wire on a machine that shreds paper caused the sparks. Damage was estimated at $800,000.
