Several engine crews reached the location by noon and encountered smoke pouring out of the plant, from which all employees had been safely evacuated, said Corona Fire Department officials.

The dust collection and removal system apparently short-circuited, causing an electrical fire that did not spread to other machinery, said a battalion chief at the scene.

It didn’t take long for firefighters to get control of the blaze as they declared under control at 12:11 p.m.

There were no injuries in the incident.

The plant is one of several owned and operated by RW Lyall, which manufactures oil and gas distribution lines, fittings, valves, meters and other products.
