Morris Mayor Chris Brown was in our studios last week giving an update on the lithium battery fire that forced 3000 residents on the east side of Morris near the old paper mill facility to evacuate on June 29th.

Brown said removing the batteries will be a very slow process.

Meanwhile, Brown said an event set for August 11th will benefit the residents who had to evacuate.

No other details about the fire investigation have been released.
