  Last Tuesday, big plumes of smoke billowed out of the crusher at the ASARCO complex in Hayden after sparks from a welder started a blaze.  The fire started about 9 a.m. and it was extinguished within an hour and a half. 

  Local fire departments assisted with the blaze.

  All appropriate environmental and safety agencies were notified.  About 30 people work at the crusher. Thankfully no one was injured in the blaze. 

  At press time there was not a estimated cost for the damages.
