Firefighters were called to the Metalcraft of Mayville facility in Beaver Dam, WI last Friday after a fire ignited in a metal dust collector, according to officials and local news reports.
The fire was called in to Dodge County Central Communications at about 9:47 a.m. and the Beaver Dam Fire Department responded to the North Spring Street scene.
“Fire units arrived to find heavy smoke in the production area, and the building evacuated. Firefighters located a fire in a metal dust collection unit in the factory,” Beaver Dam Fire said in a post on its Facebook page. “The stubborn fire was eventually extinguished with the use of many ABC fire extinguishers.”
During the response, the fire department used a rescue hovercraft to ventilate the building. No injuries were logged during the incident. The scene was cleared by 11:40 a.m.
“The fire caused a temporary suspension in production and most employees were released for the day,” said Beaver Dam Fire.
Metalcraft of Mayville cuts, forms, welds and machines metal products and provides a variety of services, including assembly and inspection.
