RIVER ROAD — Firefighters from seven fire companies battled a fire that broke out in the century-old Clark Thread Mill building, across the street from Norwest Marine, Wednesday afternoon and continued into the late evening.

The blaze started at about 4 p.m. in a silkscreen print shop, Emulsion Printhouse, in a small section of the third floor of the mill.

There were no reported injuries resulting from the fire, and no boats were damaged while crews accessed water from the river through the boatyard.
