The Ethan Allen furniture plant could be back up to a full staff level today after a fire in the boiler room Monday.
Personnel assistant Connie Mullhaupt said a skeleton crew was working Tuesday, making repairs and trying to restore electrical service and heat to the building.
"We really hope to be operating again by tomorrow with a full staff," she said. "We are doing the cleanup work today, but we really need the electricity back on to run our equipment."
Ethan Allen has 210 employees in the Mayville facility. There is no cause listed yet for the fire, which started with an explosion in the boiler room.
