A fire was reported Friday morning at the Hershey Company distribution facility in West Hershey, PA, several local news organizations reported.
Daupin County Dispatch told Harrisburg, PA-based CBS News affiliate WHP that firefighters were called to the Old West Chocolate Ave. site at about 8:30 a.m. after a blaze started in a storage room.
A short circuit in a heater located in the storage room is thought to have started the fire, a company spokesperson said in coverage by ABC News affiliate WHTM. Sprinklers in the area activated, putting out the fire swiftly.
Workers evacuate part of the building as a precaution, WHTM said. No injuries were reported during the incident.
The spokesperson told the news broadcaster that the facility is expected to resume normal operations soon.
