A short circuit in a dust collector caused a fire at a Corona, CA manufacturing facility on Monday, prompting the evacuation of employees from the site, fire officials told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

Firefighters responded to the R.W. Lyall & Co. plant at about noon, finding workers there had evacuated the building as smoke filled the building, the Corona Fire Department said in the newspaper’s report. The fire was brought down in under 20 minutes. Flames were apparently contained to the dust collection system.

No injuries were recorded during the incident. The amount of damages to the dust collection equipment is unclear.

Founded in 1970, R.W. Lyall produces oil and gas pipeline components and operates two plants in the U.S.
