    Fire at Hodgen powder plant?

    I heard a rumor that the hodgen powder plant had a fire and they have stopped production. Any truth to the rumor?

    This is an internet rumor that got started, that I wasn't able to verify anywhere. You think that some news organization would have some kind of information on this, if it actually happened. It's amazing what people believe just from word of mouth. I heard it was an explosion set off by the government to destroy Obama's true birth certificate. Mark
    PS. I just got off the phone with Mike at Hodgdon Powder, phone #913-362-9455, and he confirmed that there has been NO fires and that they running at full capacity. Mark

    Isn't the Internet wonderful. Bill Clinton said that it was the greatest thing since slice bread.
