Fire crews responded to a dust collector fire at an automotive structures plant in Michigan last Monday and remained on scene for two hours to put the blaze out, local news organizations reported this week.
Emergency personnel were called to the Challenge Manufacturing plant in Holland, MI at about 8 p.m. Upon arrival, firefighters were able to contain the flames to the dust collection equipment, coverage by the Holland Sentinel said. Crews also vented smoke from the Washington avenue facility.
A fire official told news radio station WHTC that the dust collector was heavily damaged during the incident, but operations were able to resume on Monday because flames did not spread to other pieces of equipment or cause damages to interior parts of the plant.
No injuries were logged during the incident. The state Fire Marshal said the fire is likely accidental.
Challenge Manufacturing is a supplier of automotive structures.
