VIDEO: Lincoln Fire & Rescue says they’re working to determine how a table saw caught fire inside 84 Lumber Wednesday evening. Battalion Chief Eddie Mueller tells 10/11 NOW the call came in around 6:30 p.m. for a fire alarm at the business near 33rd & Highway 2. Firefighters who entered the building upgraded to the call after discovering the table saw on fire in the mill area. Chief Mueller says the fire was contained, thanks in large part to a sprinkler head that activated inside the room. He says that allowed firefighters to extinguish the flames without it spreading inside the rest of the building.
