PHOTOS: A fire tore through a small Peter Pan Seafoods facility in Sand Point Wednesday morning. Edith Mejia, the office manager and a dispatcher for the small Aleutian Islands town’s police department, said the fire likely started between 7 and 8 a.m. Wednesday. “The town smells like burning plastic – it’s really bad outside,” she said. “You can smell it from here, and I’m really far away from them.” Mejia said the smell of burning plastic came from fishing gear, like nets and line that are kept at Peter Pan’s building. The facility is not a fish processing plant, but a stock room and bookkeeping space. Employees range from two to four, seasonally. Both the warehouse and nearby stock room were involved in the fire, according to a press release from Peter Pan. The company said there were no injuries.
