Firefighters were called to the Polycoat Products plant in Bedford, TX early Thursday morning after a blaze ignited in a piece of equipment at the site, local fire authorities said.
Dispatched to the site at about 4 a.m., crews responded to the scene and worked to determine the source of the flames.
“Once on scene, crews entered and found fire coming from a commercial oven. Command requested a full alarm assignment, bringing automatic-mutual-aid from Hurst. A spaghetti load was stretched to attack the fire,” Bedford Fire Department said in a post on its Facebook page.
While the bulk of the fire was quickly knocked out, flames spread to the roof and a second alarm was issued to request mutual aid from other communities, fire officials said.
“In recent years, there have been other incidents at this facility including another fire and a hazmat call,” the fire department’s release noted.
No injuries were logged in the incident Thursday. The scene was cleared after several hours.
Polycoat Products, a division of American Polymers Corporation, manufactures a wide range of polyurethane, polyurea and polyaspartic coatings used in industrial, automotive, waterproofing and other applications, according to information on the company’s website.
