The McCrum Fire in Belfast

The McCrum facility of Belfast, which lies close to the Penobscot River, was set ablaze in the early morning hours of Thursday, March 24th. It has been determined that nobody was harmed during the fire and that a large fryolator is to blame for the blaze, along with conveyor belts within the factory.

Employees of McCrum

This McCrum facility employs 138. The facility is pretty much gone at this point, which leaves over a hundred employees without a job. How employees can pay the bills right now must not be easy so various fundraisers have been coordinated to help out the workers of this facility. The Maine Department of Labor has swept in to get workers on unemployment for the time being.
