    Firefighters brought a fire under control at a plywood plant in Rutland, Vermont, only to return to face a five-alarm blaze that destroyed the building.

    A fire started Wednesday afternoon at the Rutland Plywood Corp. plant. Firefighters credited three workers with helping to control the fire.

    The Rutland Herald reports hours later, at about 1:10 a.m. Thursday, firefighters went back to the scene. About 100 firefighters worked on the fire overnight.

    Firefighters don't believe the fires are suspicious and that a mechanical failure was involved.

    The American Red Cross sent volunteers to help the firefighters.
