WOOD COUNTY, W.Va.-(WTAP) The owner of a business adjacent to the fire-destroyed IEI Plastics warehouse has purchased tax liens to two pieces of land at the plant site.
The two parcels border the Broadway Industrial Park-whose owner says, it, too, suffered damage from last year's fire.
The tax liens, totaling more than $19,500, were purchased at a sheriff's auction November 15.
Broadway Industries owner R.C. "Heck" Heckert says his company made the purchase to ensure IEI cleans up fire debris that showed up on his property as a result of the fire.
A cleanup of fire debris on warehouse site was completed in September.
The fire broke out October 21, 2017, and took nine days to put out.
