Wood pellet plant catches fire

Nature Flame's wood pellet manufacturing plant in New Zealand caught fire on 3 September after two sawdust hoppers exploded.

State-owned Solid Energy owns Nature's Flame although it has been operating as an independent company since last year. Solid Energy, according to reports, has been trying to sell the business since May.
