Butte's new drug incinerator's shed damaged by fire

Posted: Updated:

BUTTE -  The shed that houses Butte's new drug incinerator was damaged by fire last night.

The incinerator shed that was just installed this year at the Montana Highway Patrol headquarters off Wynne Avenue in Butte was damaged by fire at about 11 p.m. Tuesday night.

Butte firefighters were able to put the fire out, which they said was caused by heat from the incinerator.

The incinerator burns discarded drugs at up to 2,000 degrees.

No one was injured in the fire.
