LA Pallet Fire Closes 10 Freeway, Raises Concerns about Arson - Nov 17, 2023 

Why should this story be of interest to anyone outside of Los Angeles? The reason is simple. Pallet facilities are enticing targets for arsonists. For example, a series of fires in Fontana, California years ago were eventually tied to an arsonist. According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), arson is the leading cause of fires in the United States, resulting in more than $1 billion in property loss each year.; Conner Industries Announces Joint Venture with Anderson Pallet and Crate: The 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility, located in Sedalia, Colorado, is minutes from I-25, just south of Denver, and comes with a team of twenty employees. With recent investments in new automation equipment for processing lumber and assembled items, the joint venture is expected to be highly successful for both parties.
