Crews did have to handle some flames coming out of the roof, but they had it under control in about 15 minutes and were helped by the on-site fire mitigation system.

The food product supplier is described as a company that makes every day, affordable meals that are sold in area grocery stores, according to the company’s website. 

The fire may have been due to a grease buildup within the facility’s ducts, officials said. They said the area near the fire will likely be shut down for a time, but production will continue in the rest of the plant.

There were no injuries in the incident.
