Fire at Iochpe’s cellulose pulp factory

Did you know…

… it was 1947, and the plant, located in Rio Grande do Sul, produced groundwood pulp to obtain cellulose for packaging, paper bags, corrugated cardboard, toilet paper, newsreel and other paper products. Luckily no-one was hurt in the blaze, but the fire conspired with other market factors to make the company switch to another activity.
