A fire at a manufacturing plant caused damage to the roof and prompted an evacuation of the building’s employees in Cary Tuesday morning, fire officials said.
The Cary Fire Protection District responded around 6:38 a.m. Tuesday to Durex International, 190 Detroit Street in Cary, for a report of a structure fire.
Firefighters arrived on the scene four minutes later to find a large industrial building with smoke coming from the roof on the rear side, according to Cary Fire Protection District Lt. Michael Douglass.
Employees of the business were also in the process of evacuating the building.
Firefighters entered the building and were told by employees that the fire was in the ceiling above an aluminum furnace machine, Douglass said.
The fire was found in the ceiling inside the building and also on the roof near venting ductwork from the furnace machine.
The fire was extinguished and brought under control within minutes, Douglass said.
Crews remained on the scene overhauling to check for any fire extension. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
There were no civilian or firefighter injuries. A damage estimate was not immediately available.
Durex employees were able to return to the building and the business was able to remain open, Douglass said.
Firefighters from the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills, Barrington, Barrington-Countryside, Fox River Grove and Nunda-Rural fire departments responded to the scene as part of an automatic agreement.
The Cary Police Department also assisted at the scene.
