Ameriwood Industries Dowagiac Fire

It appears Ameriwood Industries in Dowagiac had a major fire today (and as of the writing of this post, the building is still on fire).
Do they still use rail service?

Last I heard they were still getting rail service but not as much as in the past.

An employee was shot 2 nights ago and 3 people in a stolen Lexus from Indiana were arrested. It happen in their parking lot, nothing to do with the fire but the Dowagiac public safety department has been busy there this week. No more.

Just checked out the live cam in downtown Dowagiac. Looks like the fire is mostly out and didn't spread to the entire plant.
Trails to Rails. Put the track back.
