Fire breaks out in Molalla IMDF plant


A fire broke out Thursday night at the IMDF plant at 221 Commercial Parkway, in Molalla.

Molalla Fire District responded to a call at 8:51 p.m. Thursday, July 25 and found one of the wax-melting machines in the plant on fire. The fire was contained to the machine and nearby ductwork, with smoke damage throughout the building, said MFD spokesman Mike Penunuri.

IMDF, or Informed Medical Decisions Foundation, builds prosthetic devices and titanium replacements for people and pets. The wax machine was used to make molds, Penunuri said.
