Fire crews responded to a small blaze at the TeckLane Manufacturing plant in Springdale, PA on Thursday morning, several local news organizations reported. 

The fire started after a worker spun the wheels of a forklift and dust ignited, a TeckLane employee told CBS News affiliate KDKA. 

Firefighters were called to the Railroad Street facility after the blaze began at about 7 a.m., Allegheny Valley Regional Emergency Management Agency Emergency Management Coordinator Bruno Moretti said in an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  

The plant was expected to be back in operation later that afternoon, a company official said in the newspaper’s coverage.

No injuries were logged during the incident, KDKA said, 

TeckLane Manufacturing is a metal stamping and fabrication business
