Pallet plant catches fire in Memphis, no injuries

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis firefighters are battling a large fire at a shipping pallet factory.

WMC-TV reported flames were shooting from the GHS Enterprises plant northwest of Memphis International Airport early Tuesday morning.

Fire Department officials said there had been no injuries. It wasn't clear what caused the plant to burst into flame, but officials said two large trucks parked near the warehouse made it difficult to get fire equipment into place.
