No injuries were reported after a fire in a dust collection system prompted the evacuation of a manufacturing plant in Huntley Tuesday evening.
The Huntley Fire Protection District and Huntley Police Department responded around 9:21 p.m. Tuesday to LDI Industries, 12901 Jim Dhamer Drive in Huntley.
Huntley Deputy Fire Chief Patrick Fortunato said dispatchers received a call for smoke pouring into the building.
Firefighters arrived to find a dust collection system on fire on the exterior of the building.
Fire personnel on the scene quickly deployed water to extinguish the fire, Fortunato said.
Fortunato said the building was “fully charged with smoke” and firefighters remained at the scene to ventilate it.
All employees were evacuated safely and no injuries were reported.
A ventilation vehicle from the Elk Grove Village Fire Department was requested to help evacuate smoke from the large commercial building.
The Hampshire, Pingree Grove, Algonquin, Woodstock and Fox River Grove fire departments also responded to the incident.
Fortunato reminded residents to have a plan and to practice home and work fire drills.
